Bow Wow

Bow Wow, the noted rapper, has announced that he is to begin training in the hopes of making it into a WWE ring with WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi.

Bow Wow has been engaged in several back and forths on Twitter in recent days. Stating that he wants to join WWE after his latest album is released. Today, Bow Wow took things one step further as he announced his intentions to train for a spot in the ring.

Bow Wow tweeted:

“I have officially decided to train with my boy @TheREALRIKISHI at his gym in California to get ready for the @wwe. LOCKED IN”

Rikishi is the owner and trainer at the KnokX Pro Wrestling Academy in Los Angeles, California along with his cousin, Black Pearl.

Bow Wow also had words for Damian Priest. Priest has been aligned with another rap superstar – Bad Bunny, as they have come up against The Miz and John Morrison in recent weeks. Bow Wow sent a message to ‘The Archer of Infamy:’

“Hey @ArcherOfInfamy tell your little pet bad bunny I’ve been watching… and im not impressed…. i got @TheRealMorrison back! Stop hiding from the REAL mr bunny”

Bow Wow would follow up with a jab at the social media following of wrestlers responding to him. Bow Wow himself has 3 million Twitter followers.

“A lot of the wrestlers who are coming for me on twitter should be happy im going back and forth. Most have like 70k followers. Im actually helping you become a bigger name (million dollar man laugh) how you on RAW with 50k followers. Something not adding up.”

Bow Wow would not be the first rapper to enter the world of professional wrestling. The aforementioned Bad Bunny is reportedly training at the Performance Center for a possible match down the line. Snoop Dogg recently appeared on AEW Dynamite, hitting a ‘Snoop splash’ on Serpentico. Further back, in the nineties, Master P became a fixture on WCW. He would lead his No Limit Soldiers in a battle with the West Texas Rednecks.
By training at Rikishi’s KnokX Pro Wrestling Academy, the 34-year-old would be following in the footsteps of NXT’s Vanessa Borne and AEW’s Miro.
