College wrestler chooses the original Pokémon anime theme as his entrance song, ends up winning National Championship
University of Iowa freshman Spencer Lee managed to defeat Rutgers University Nick Suriano earlier this month, winning the 125-pound title at the 2018 NCAA Wrestling Championships in the process. To get himself pumped up for battle, Lee chose the English version of the original Pokémon anime theme song to give himself a boost before the match. You can catch a glimpse of this in the embedded video below:
Got to Love seeing this as a Wrestler myself in High School I like seeing this. :)
As a past wrestler myself, it also has to be realized that Iowa has more national titles than any other school by a VERY wide margin. Coming in with Pokemon may seem cool, but there was a lot more to this than a 20 second soundbite.
