Six year old artist designs favourite wrestler’s gear

lue.jpg 

    Luke Miles likes wrestling.
    The six-year-old Drumheller boy can recite the names of hall of famers Andre the Giant and Honky-tonk Man to the present day greats of John Cena and Dolff Zeigler. He knows what match is going on, what is coming up and who the champions are. He is an avid reader of WWE Kids magazine.
    Okay, Luke Miles loves wrestling.

    One of his favourites is Kofi Kingston, the three time Intercontinental Champion.
    “He’s a great high flyer,” said Luke.
    It was through his favourite magazine that Luke had the chance of a lifetime. He entered a contest to design Kingston’s trunks and kick pads.
    The youngster’s artistic vision and ability paid off as he won the contest. His design was chosen. His picture appeared in WWE Kids and Kingston debuted his new look gear at the Over the Limit Pay Per View event in May.
    The outfit is in colours of the Ghanaian flag, where Kofi hails from, and features Kofi’s personal logo. Because it reminded Luke of a spider, he also added spider webs.
    In WWE Kids Kingston said, “I had a hard time picking just one design, because they were all incredible. Luke’s drawing has a lot of different elements to it - The Ghanaian flag on the back, the spider webs and the overall design from top to bottom, it really had so much going on. It was really cool to me, thanks, Luke!”
    The experience was a thrill for Luke, son of Cory and Crystal.  He watches wrestling with his older brother and his dad. He demonstrates time and again his knowledge of the wrestling world is top notch.
 While Luke is getting ready to start Grade 1 this fall at Greentree School, it may be a little early to start career planning, but when asked if one day he would like to be a wrestler, he said he wanted to become a wrestling trainer.
