Former MLB player Jose Canseco, who doesn’t have any known wrestling experience, will apparently make his pro wrestling debut in November.
The announcement states:
World Class Revolution is very proud to announce OklaMania IV, November 3rd, 2019 will be the professional wrestling debut of former Major League Baseball Superstar Jose Canseco. We will also present the 1ST OklaMania Jose Canseco Home Run Derby on November 2nd, 2019 in Ardmore, Oklahoma at Ardmore Regional Park where a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Carter County Toys for Tots. Jose is without a doubt one of the greatest athletes professional baseball has ever seen being the first ever 40 home run/40 stolen base athlete in history. He was AL MVP, 6-time All Star, 2-time World Series Champion, and hit an amazing 462 home runs in his career.
“Last year upon working with Jose for the first time, I think we both knew the professional wrestling venture was inevitable if done properly. A little over a year later here we are announcing it. Jose is still in immaculate shape, and it’s my pleasure to share this platform with him. I’d like to thank Jose and his agent Morgan for making this possible. You can see it November 3rd, 2019 as World Class Revolution presents OklaMania IV live in Ardmore, Oklahoma or on PPV streaming live at FITE TV. Our concept of combining all forms of entertainment together has proven to be our calling card. November 3rd, we change the game in multiple ways, you do not want to miss the 4th OklaMania!”
This is the same promotion who freaked out the wrestling community last year after making it appear as though Farrah Abraham would be getting into the business. They later announced it was a misunderstanding, but the promotion insists this Canseco announcement is legit and “not BS.”
