The following was taken from a recent email from #15638 Nana Bandoh.
Nana Osei Bandoh was a camper at Camp Dudley, who was infatuated by the world of pro wrestling at the young age of 12. In 1993 Nana’s cabin area at Camp Dudley was filled with posters and wrestling related items that everyone admired and sometimes joked on him about. Coincidently at that time Nana’s Leader, who is now current Camp Dudley Director Matt Storey, encouraged Nana to join the wrestling club at camp. It was right then and there, that Nana knew he was born to be in the Pro Wrestling world. He loved putting on a show before he won his matches at Dudley.
Almost 20 years later, trained by a WWE Hall of Famer, and numerous appearances at almost every top promotion in the USA, including WWE and trips overseas to Japan and England, Nana is one of the most well-known legends in pro wrestling today, known as Prince Nana from Ring Of Honor Wrestling/Sinclair Broadcast Group.
In wrestling Nana has done it all from wrestling at Madison Square Garden, managing multiple athletes, to producing and promoting events at prestigious NYC locations such as Hammerstein Ballroom and much more! Nana was instrumental in introducing the Camp Dudley “Yoha” hand gesture!!! To the wrestling industry having scores of wrestlers and fans throw up the symbol for a faction known as “The Embassy” that Nana leads with the likes of many individuals who are now signed with WWE, including current NXT Champion Tamasso Chiampa.
Currently, Nana is still active in the wrestling industry and Lives in Brooklyn NY and also owns a sales/Music Management Consulting firm known as The Bandoh Group.
It’s obvious that Nana’s ultimate goal is to be in the WWE, however, his early access to the “Other Fellow First” understanding at Camp Dudley has allowed Nana to enjoy a sustainable life and career in pro wrestling and entertainment while helping others achieve their dreams with him by their side in wrestling.
Till this day Nana credits some of his success to his summers at Camp Dudley and it’s not hard to see why.
