ALL ELITE WRESTLING UNRESTRICTED: Anthony Ogogo


Posted on 1/25/124 by Bob Magee



Anthony Ogogo had a last-minute moment in front of his
hometown crowd at AEW All In London, and explains how it
came together with Paul Wight and Kip Sabian. He talks about
the injury that sidelined him early at AEW, his recovery
path, and what he hopes to accomplish this year in wrestling
now that he’s healthy.

He details his boxing career from how he got started to
qualifying for the Olympics to winning the bronze medal at
the 2012 Games to the brutal eye injury that ultimately
ended his career. And he shares his AEW journey including
the roles that both Diamond Dallas Page and Cody Rhodes
played in it, along with Tony Khan’s initial idea for
Anthony that also involved Chris Jericho. Plus, Anthony
makes the case for why he’s the best 30-match novice in pro-
wrestling, and he lays out his plans to become the “next,
next” James Bond!
