Michael Oku is one of the top names on the British Independent scene, competing in standout matches against the likes of Will Ospreay at Revolution Pro Wrestling.
Oku has made various trips to America over the years, most recently competing at Garden State Pro Wrestling.
Speaking to Candace Cordelia for PWI's Rising Stars series, Oku named other US independent promotions he has his eyes on.
"I would love to come back to GCW. They are probably the hottest independent promotion in the world. Everybody is paying attention to what they're doing. Naturally, as a wrestler, you want to go to where people are paying attention to. I'd love to go back there and have a few more shots. Same with Garden State. I felt like I had a good time and left a good impression. I'm more than willing to go back to Garden State. Places I've seen, Pro Wrestling REVOLVER. I really like what I see from Pro Wrestling REVOLVER, that would be a cool one. Then, a new one, DEADLOCK Pro. They have come out of nowhere and have become a real destination, especially looking abroad across the sea. It's really standing out as a promotion doing good things and getting a lot of attention. Those are some of the main ones I'm seeing if I can dip my feet into. Whoever is calling, I'll answer," he said.
REVOLVER is based in Iowa and run by Sami Callihan while DEADLOCK is based in North Carolina and run by Anthony Douglas, James Darnell & John Blud.
