Bow Wow Wants AEW “Roster Spot”

Bow Wow

All Elite Wrestling hasn’t exactly shied away from expanding its roster following its 2019 inauguration. At least doubling the size of its original roster, it appears Bow Wow wants a piece of the cake as well. The 35-year-old rapper tweeted AEW CEO Tony Khan, asking for a spot on the AEW roster once his current tour is over.

Tony Khan is yet to reply to the one-time Billboard Music Award winner, though he did hit the like button on his tweet. That several AEW performers – current TBS Champion Jade Cargill, in particular – are getting involved on social media hints that something may be brewing between AEW and Bow Wow.

Swerve Strickland Calls Out Bow Wow

Bow Wow’s interest in heading to All Elite Wrestling hasn’t come out of nowhere. He initially tweeted a desire to sign with AEW upon Swerve Strickland calling him out while speaking with RJ City on Hey! (EW). The one-time AEW World Tag Team Champion noted how Bow Wow has connections with WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi to get him formally trained:

“You know, since he’s been talking about doing some stuff on social media for like the last year, but I have yet to see any video footage or training, I want Bow Wow. Yeah, I want to see Shad Moss get in the ring…since he’s been talking about that so much on social media.

I’m calling you out. I know you got connections with training with Rikishi. That’s cool, get your training in. I want you in AEW. You responded to me on Twitter too, I need you to back up those words, homie.”

Bow Wow first tweeted in February 2021 that he was training under Rikishi in preparation for a potential WWE match. He subsequently targeted the likes of Damian Priest and T-BAR, mocking Priest for his choice of Bad Bunny as a tag team partner at WrestleMania 37.
