Head Trainer - David Cattin

As Head Trainer, David Cattin is the center of our training curriculum. He guides the progress of the training by using his over 12 years of wrestling experience to assess and advance the students as they progress through the curriculum.

In his early years, "Smooth As Satin" David Cattin earned championships as both a singles and tag team competitor, during which he earned the opportunity to work opposite well known wrestlers Bam Bam Bigelow and Honky Tonk Man. David has wrestled in the states of TX, OK, SD, IL, KY, TN, AK, IN, NM, NE, IA, and of course Kansas and Missouri. He has wrestled for Next Level Elite Wrestling (NLEW), Kansas City Xtreme Wrestling (KCXW), Universal Championship Wrestling, Ultimate Championship Wrestling, XXX Wrestling, All Star Wrestling (ASW), and Whiplash Wrestling.

The experience David has gained on the Independent Circuit has been transferred into the training at the Xtreme Wrestling Center, and his ability to guide prospective students through our course stands as evidence of his passion and patience in transferring this important knowledge.

Other passions include his family and all things nerd!

David is proud of being able to accomplish this impressive wrestling history while being a single father. He has also been able to attain a management level position at his current employer.

Co-Trainer - Adam Houck

Initially trained by David Cattin in 2006, Adam has become an exemplary student of the industry. His quick study of catch wrestling, freestyle, lucha libre, and acrobatic styles has developed him to into a respected wrestler, referee, and trainer in the Midwest.

Since then he has established himself and wrestled for Minnesota Extreme Wrestling (MEW), SIC-W, Kansas City Xtreme Wrestling (KCXW), Whiplash Wrestling, Next Level Elite Wrestling, and Top of Texas Pro Wrestling, IWA Productions.

Adam has had the opportunity to work with known wrestlers including Angel Medina, and in recent years, he has appeared as an extra on AEW. He has transitioned into mainly training and reffing, which has led to the opportunity to ref matches for Scott Steiner, Nyla Rose, Buff Bagwell, Kevin Thorne, and Rhyno, to name a few.

Other passions include music, and he is able to play guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard. In high school, Adam was part of a band called “Never Falls Down” and they even made their own album.

During 2020, when the world began its descent into the covid pandemic, Adam made the best of a bad situation by changing his wedding plans. He ended up getting married in the wrestling ring at XWC! Adam is incredibly proud of the “catio” that he and David teamed up to build over the summer of 2021 at Adam’s residence in Kearney, Missouri.

Assistant Trainer - Will Ault

Will has been interested in wrestling since he was a kid. He used to “practice” with his siblings and friends, throwing his first powerbomb on his brother at age 11. Lots of things got broken around the house and this led his mom to ban wrestling in their house for a few years. He started his wrestling training here at the XWC in June 2017, then had his first match just 4 months later in October 2017!

Since then, he has wrestled in multiple states including MO, KS, NE, IL, IN, and CO for a variety of different companies, including Kansas City Xtreme Wrestling (KCXW) and New Breed Wrestling (NBW).

During his time with Xtreme Wrestling Center, Will has helped fill multiples different roles from running social media, operations manager, and now as a trainer. His passions include his children, his bulldog puppy, and doing nerdy stuff. He does occasionally wrestle with his kids, but a lot less things get broken now.

Assistant Trainer - Amber Houston

Amber fell in love with wrestling around 5 years old. She watched it for years on television with her dad, who is the one she credits with starting her love for wrestling. She learned of Kansas City Xtreme Wrestling when she was 16 and started following the indy wrestling scene as she started attending shows.

Amber began attending Xtreme Wrestling Center when she was 17, having a collegiate wrestling background from High School. She graduated the training program in May of 2021, and has attained the status of the first female assistant trainer at XWC.
