By Josh Modaberi, October 14, 2014

Al Snow is one of the best grapplers of his generation to step through the ropes. In a career that has spanned three decades he has competed in ECW, WWE and TNA. Snow now works more behind the scenes at TNA as a producer where he is involved in the second series of British Bootcamp and along with Samoa Joe and Gail Kim [pictured below with Al], where he is one of the judges on the show.

Al Snow is one of the best grapplers of his generation to step through the ropes. In a career that has spanned three decades he has competed in ECW, WWE and TNA. Snow now works more behind the scenes at TNA as a producer where he is involved in the second series of British Bootcamp and along with Samoa Joe and Gail Kim, where he is one of the judges on the show.

However TNA's British Bootcamp isn't the first time Snow has been involved in a wrestling reality show as he was involved in WWE's Tough Enough.

"British Bootcamp isn't my first time at the dance when it comes to working on a wrestling reality show," Snow told The American. "I was involved in the first three series of WWE's Tough Enough.

"I really enjoyed being a part of Tough Enough and working with the other judges and unearthing new talent was fantastic. There was a lot of great talent on those shows as well, some of the guys that come to mind are John Morrison and Kenny King.

"I really enjoy working on shows like this that enable me to work with the young and up and coming talent and seeing them progress to hopefully make it to the main event roster."

Rockstar Spud won the first series of TNA's British Bootcamp and has gone on to be one of the most familiar faces on TNA's flagship show IMPACT! Spud has got to work with the likes of TNA president Dixie Carter, Bully Ray, Jeff Hardy and Olympic Gold medalist Kurt Angle.

"I love Rockstar Spud," The 51–year–old Snow declared. "What he has achieved since winning the first series of British Bootcamp is incredible. I think he is going to be big star and I really enjoy watching him perform, he is such a great character both inside and outside of the ring. With the second series of British Bootcamp coming up, it is a fantastic opportunity for a lot of young talent and for us to hopefully find another star like Rockstar Spud."

As part of his role as a producer for TNA Snow has been involved in the tryouts that TNA hold when they come over to the UK every January to try an unearth new talent and he thinks the British grappling scene is thriving at the moment.

"The British wrestling scene at the moment is in a very good position and there are a lot of talented guys and girls," he added. "However if start to name names, I will miss one out and then they would be offended, so I don't want to name names because I don't want to forget anybody.

"It will be interesting to see what they do when they are given an opportunity like British Bootcamp."

British Boot Camp season two premieres in the UK on Sunday, October 19 on Challenge.
