The U.K. has been blessed with lots of very talented young wrestlers over the last few years. Omari has had a great 2017 and 2018 looks to get even better as he continues to deliver outstanding performances. He is someone I am positive has the potential for greatness.
UWR: Where are you from?/How old are you?
Omari: I am 21 years old and from Birmingham.
UWR: Growing up were you a fan of Pro Wrestling?
Omari: Yeah I would say so. I knew of wrestling and played a bunch of the games when I was younger. WWF War Games on the PS1 is the earliest one that I can remember. I properly got into watching it around 2008/09.
UWR: Where did you train to become a wrestler and who trained you?
Omari: I began training at a place in Dudley by Kevin O’Neil.
UWR: Who were some of your influences growing up?
Omari: If I’m honest I don’t really have a particular person that has influenced me. I just enjoyed the whole show and enjoyed watching everybody.
UWR: Are your family and friends supportive of your pro wrestling career?
Omari: Wrestling is my thing and not really for them. My family has never seen me wrestle, but they are still very supportive of me, even though they don’t understand it or know where I am most of the time.
UWR: I’m sure like every wrestler you remember your first match. Did it go well and what do you remember most about it?
Omari: I remember it was the first trainee academy show the company did and was like 8/9 months after I started training. At that time I probably thought it went alright, but if I look back at it now I know I’d be so wrong.
UWR: What is your proudest moment from your time in pro wrestling?
Omari: Very recently, I won the Fight Club: PRO Infinity Tournament, which was special!
Also, being able to take part in the WWE tryouts this year has been pretty awesome.
UWR: Are there any goals you have set for yourself that you have not yet achieved?
Omari: Very weirdly I did not have any goals going into 2017 and just went with the flow. I’ve been mega fortunate to do things that I probably would have never considered myself doing. Here’s to 2018 being equally as good or better.
UWR: What advice would you give to anyone starting out in wrestling?
Omari: Be yourself, listen, train hard and enjoy everything!
UWR: Where can people see you next?
Omari: I will be at Fight Club: PRO on the 26th of January for their first event of 2018 at Starworks Warehouse in Wolverhampton.
