In order to start a professional wrestling company, you first need a ring in which the wrestlers can perform. Although it is hypothetically possible to purchase a professional wrestling ring from an independent wrestling promoter (especially if the promoter's wrestling company is closing down), it is better to purchase a pro ring directly from a professional wrestling ring manufacturer. Buying from a ring manufacturer gives you a bit of quality assurance as well as more options overall.
Decide on the dimensions of the professional wrestling ring you want to buy. The mat of a WWE size ring is 20 feet by 20 feet, with a 3-foot-high platform, but several other sizes exist as well. Small rings are 14 by 14 feet, while extra large rings are 22 feet by 22 feet. Price depends mainly on the size of the ring.
Visit a website such as Pro Wrestling Rings, Monster Rings or Highspots to search through the types of rings available.
Call or e-mail the ring manufacturer if you have any questions. Ask to visit the manufacturer and check out the rings firsthand. You also may be given the option to customise your ring for an additional cost.
Purchase your wrestling ring. Some manufacturers offer financing if you cannot pay the full total outright. Orders placed over the Internet will be delivered to you for a fee, but you will likely have to set up the ring yourself.
Many ring manufacturing companies offer ring rental services.
