If 49-year old non-wrestler Shane McMahon can win a tournament naming him the “best in the world,” and 54-year old Undertaker can face 52-year old Bill Goldberg in a terrible main event in Saudi Arabia, why can’t 55-year old non-wrestler Jose Canseco take the wrestling world by storm as its top Rated Rookie?
Last year we told you about how 30/30 Club member and Lonely Island topic Jose Canseco had “signed a contract” with World Class Revolution in rural Oklahoma with the intent of becoming a pro wrestler. It looks like that year of what we can only assume to be intensive training has paid off, because Parkway Jose is set to make his official pro wrestling debut at the delightfully named OklaMania featuring OklaCon: A Celebration of Oklahoma. Needs more Oklahoma!
Via a press release:
World Class Revolution Inc. officially announces OklaMania featuring OklaCon: A Celebration of Oklahoma will take place November 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in Ardmore, Oklahoma at the Ardmore Convention Center LIVE and OklaMania IV, our annual signature professional wrestling event, will also air LIVE on Pay Per View via FITE TV.
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!” -Jerry Bostic, CEO, World Class Revolution Inc.

Canseco’s opponent hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s not too late to bring in the worker of the Bash Brothers to make it a tag team match. It’d be a great, American bash!
