Indie Wrestler Dani Mo to Set Wrestling World Record For Highest-Elevated Match

Independent wrestler Dani Mo is hoping to go down in history as a wrestler who competed in the highest-elevated match in history. 

If all goes according to plan, the match will take place on May 23, from the base camp at Kala Patthar in the Nepali Himalayas. The camp is situated at 18,519 feet (5644.6 meters) above sea level and is close proximity to Mount Everest.

Mo has been in Nepal for the week leading up to the match and the BBC is documenting her bout against Bhagawati Khadka (Unika). The Nepalese pro wrestler is described by Tribune Live in Pittsburgh as “a beloved national celebrity in her country” who has appeared on that country’s version of Dancing with the Stars. 

Who is Dani Mo? 

Mo made her professional debut in 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic that led to several wrestling promotions closing their doors. She has competed for various independent promotions including Game Changer Wrestling, WrestleRex, and Ohio Valley Wrestling. 

Mo has also had some experience in big-time promotions. From October 2021 to November 2022, she made a handful of appearances for AEW where she lost to Tay Melo, Thunder Rosa, Serena Deeb, and Athena. Mo would compete for Ring of Honor in 2023 where she lost to Madison Rayne and Billie Starkz.

WWE fans with a good memory may remember Dani Mo’s sole appearance for the promotion in August 2022. During an episode of Raw, Mo teamed with Katie Arquette and future AEW star Kayla Sparks in a loss to Alexa Bliss, Asuka, and Bianca Belair.
