Bo Nickal Debuts Super Saiyan Blue Hair For Start Of Wrestling Season
Penn State senior wrestler Bo Nickal is no stranger to switching up his look every year. The redshirt senior has rocked plenty of different hairdos throughout his career, including long bleached blond locks, a crew cut, and a thick ginger beard that looked like something you’d find decorating Paul Bunyan’s face.
But he may have saved his boldest for last. The two-time national champion is making a statement in 2018 (or at least for the second time) and following in the footsteps of Marge Simpson and Katy Perry.
Nickal mixed a touch of blue into his normally blond hair this offseason and proudly showed it off at the team’s preseason media day Tuesday.
Here’s a look back at the many faces of Bo Nickal and his glo-up from a 174 lb. freshman out of Texas to a blue-haired 197-pounder riding a 38-match winning streak.
Teammate Mark Hall said he plans to call Nickal “Ninja” this season, in reference to the popular Fortnite streamer with more than 12 million followers on Twitch who also has blue hair. Hall claims Nickal and Ninja are “identical.”
You can make that judgment for yourself, but we think a more fitting name for Nickal, a longtime Dragon Ball Z fan, may be Goku, whose hair becomes blue during his “Super Saiyan God” power-ups. Plus, Nickal’s faint tone of blue more closely resembles Goku’s hair than Penn State blue does.
