– As reported earlier, WWE developmental wrestler Brian Jossie is doing a gimmick in Florida Championship claiming to be the first black president of wrestling. He recently debuted the gimmick under the name “Abraham Obama Washington” and is also trying to emulate Barack Obama’s appearance. As it turns out, an Ohio based indy wrestler by the name of Lamont “Action” Williams has been doing the very same “First Black President of Professional Wrestling” gimmick for about a year.
A brief bio on Lamont “Action” Williams reads: “Crooked Barack Obama Spin-Off – Since there is going to take a “Black Man” to repair this country in dispair, then it is obvious that it will take a “Black MAN” you help restore the attendance, credibility, and Entertainment value of Professional Wrestling.”
He also says Presidential-like phrases in his promos including: “NEW “Black Party”, “Vote or BE CHOKED” Campaign 08, “We need Change, and for change we NEED ACTION…Lamont “Action” Williams, “The Reason You watch Professional”, “The Best Thing Since Wrestling”, and “Greetings my fellow FANS and Constituents….”
He also wears red, white and blue tights with stars on them.
Williams has been doing the gimmick in the Cleveland All-Pro Wrestling promotion for about a year in hopes of nabbing a deal with WWE.
