"Last year upon working with Jose for the first time, I think we both knew the professional wrestling venture was inevitable if done properly," World Class Revolution CEO Jerry Bostic said. "A little over a year later here we are announcing it. Jose is still in immaculate shape, and it’s my pleasure to share this platform with him. I’d like to thank Jose and his agent Morgan for making this possible. You can see it November 3rd, 2019 as World Class Revolution presents OklaMania IV live in Ardmore, Oklahoma or on PPV streaming live at FITE TV. Our concept of combining all forms of entertainment together has proven to be our calling card. November 3rd, we change the game in multiple ways, you do not want to miss the 4th OklaMania!"
