NWA Oklahoma in the news.

Phil Banker of the Associated Press recently did a write up of NWA Oklahoma going into details about the group and talks to wrestlers like Prince Al Farat, Ky-Ote, and La Reina de Corazones. Banker spoke to the wrestler prior to the action at the Tivoli Theater.

One of the night’s hometown heroes charged the ring in an Indian headdress and wielding a tomahawk. Joe Herell, who wrestles as “Ky-Ote,” is an Ardmore native and 2007 graduate of Dickson High School. Herell said he idolized pro wrestlers since childhood and started training every weekend three years ago to join their ranks. He hopes to eventually perform for World Wrestling Entertainment or Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.

“As long as you get exposure, that’s all that matters,” Herell said. “That’s everybody’s goal, man.”
