Togo pro-wrestling training: PWAP seeks financial support for ‘Team Nigeria’

Posted : 21 February 2024

Pro Wrestling Afrik Promotions (PWAP), a registered professional wrestling promotion outfit that serves as the link for African Professional Wrestling to the world, is seeking financial support to take four Nigerian wrestlers, an official, and a journalist to Lome, Togo. This is to enable the country to be well-represented at the timely Professional Wrestling training for West African athletes, in which Nigeria is a major stakeholder.

The Executive Director of Pro Wrestling Afrik Promotions (PWAP), Olusesan Olukoya, who will be leading the Nigerian team to Lome, Togo, where the training will be held at the Kegue Stadium, a multi-purpose stadium in Lome, Togo, from March 1st to 3rd, 2024, is very optimistic that the training would be a good step in the right direction for the growth and development of African professional wrestling.

According to him, the training is aimed at equipping athletes from the West Coast of Africa with the most modern techniques of the mat wrestling game, as well as making the game have a foothold in the West African sub-region.

"It’s equally of paramount importance to state that the training program will also be used to formally introduce practical professional wrestling in Togo; though professional wrestling has been inaugurated in that country and Togo Catch association has been officially formed, but this training will go a long way in keeping the fighters abreast of the most modern techniques and rules of the game," Olukoya said.

He further explained that other West African countries that are yet to have professional wrestling, who would be attending, will learn a lot and their associations and Federations formed in their different nations after the training. He mentioned that kudos must go to Jim McDowell, a great wrestler, Dentist, and President of Golden Wrestling Federacy for initiating the training program.

"The training is the first of its kind in West Africa, and the good thing is that it will be handled by world-renowned wrestlers who will be coming all the way from the United States to impart their knowledge to the West African athletes.

Liberia, Benin Republic, Ghana, Gambia, Zimbabwe, and Togo, the host nation, have indicated interest in participating in the training, and Nigeria as a stakeholder would be at the training.

Olukoya said his body is seeking financial support to enable them to travel to Lome, Togo, to participate in the training, stating that the needed funds would take care of the transportation, feeding, and lodging of the team members. He also announced that the team would be traveling by road to Lome on Thursday, 29th February 2024.
