The man, the star, the champion. Jesse Owusu is not only one of SCW’s earliest stars, but also one of our first champions, being the inaugural SCW North American Champion. His reign is a day longer than that of the man who relieved him of the championship, but Owusu wasn’t pressed to go after the belt, as he became a challenger for the SCW World Championship.
There were rumors of a returning star, and we are able to confirm that Jesse Owusu is indeed the star who was set to return. Jesse Owusu competed at Overdrive 43, making his triumphant return over Jacina, also a former SCW North American Champion.
Initially, Mr. Walker claimed to not know who it was, but had this to say when we caught up with him.
“As if I wouldn’t know who’s going to be on payroll in my company? Jesse Owusu helped lift this company off the ground back in the day. If he were around longer, I imagine we might have seen him become SCW World Champion at some point. And who knows, perhaps he can earn himself a bid at the new SCW World Heavyweight Championship. Never know what the future holds. I’ve made a significant investment in getting Young Life back on SCW programming, and I’m sure he’ll make it worthwhile.”
For now, we are glad to have Owusu back in SCW, and look forward to seeing him do what he does best.
