The South China Morning Post recently spoke to OWE Vice President Michael Nee, who was publicly making a case to the United States Embassy to provide wrestlers from OWE with work visas so they can perform at AEW’s upcoming All Out event in Chicago later this summer. Below are some highlights.

Nee on the visa issue preventing wrestlers from going to Double or Nothing: “There were four of our talented Chinese wrestlers invited to Double or Nothing, but they couldn’t get visas because of the embassy. We gave them everything we had – invitation letters, documents, we were all prepared but it didn’t happen. We tried twice. That’s something big for us right now. If more people know, maybe there’s a better chance to have a visa next time for the big show in Chicago. We are invited, and OWE and AEW are both trying every way we can to get there and we need people to understand this. This is a big thing for China as well. No one else in the world has this platform to show themselves.”

Nee on being sad and angry over why this is happening: “Maybe it’s the trade war, or our wrestlers are too young – I think they are afraid our kids will run off the plane and don’t come back. We just feel so sorry, we are actually really sad and angry that we can’t show our talent to the world. It’s a unique and special opportunity. We want to let people know, to understand this is a good thing for China to export the culture. Please let us come.”
