This is real.
World Class Revolution Pro Wrestling announced that former MLB superstar Jose Canseco will make his wrestling debut at OklaMania in November. According to the press release, which you can view below, the show will air live on FITE TV.
World Class Revolution Pro Wrestling made headlines in 2018 after they announced reality star Farrah Abraham would be part of one of their events, but the whole thing turned out to be "a misunderstanding." This time around, WCRPW insists that there is "no BS" and Canseco's appearance is "real, very real."
While Canseco has no in-ring experience as a wrestler, he did compete against Choi Hong-man in a MMA bout at DREAM 9 in 2009. Canseco lost in just over a minute, tapping out due to strikes.
