– According to the state Athletic Commission, William Ogletree (who was 25 years old) was critically injured while performing a move during an illegal wrestling match.. Ogletree suffered the injury on Sunday and was reported to have no brain activity on Tuesday.

Ogletree was injured after being hit with a spine buster, according to his uncle Jospeh Ogletree. The uncle said his nephew only recently began competing in professional wrestling but had expressed interest in it for quite some time.

According to the administrator of the Oklahoma State Athletic Commission Joe Miller, this event was not licensed by the commission despite the state’s requirement for all professional wrestling events to receive approval before they begin. The Athletic Commission has denied the event organizers a license in the past.

The commission has talked to the Oklahoma County district attorney about filing charges while William Ogletree’s family looks for answers.

“He’s always been a bright spot to many people’s lives,” Joseph Ogletree said.
