Rapper Bow Wow To Begin Training With WWE Hall Of Famer

Rapper Bow Wow is set to begin training in the ring with WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi.

As we've noted, Bow Wow recently took to Twitter and promised to focus on acting and pro wrestling once he's released his final album. This led to coverage from WWE, and several back & forth exchanges with wrestlers, and fans. Now Bow Wow is ready to begin training in the ring for a pro wrestling career.


Bow Wow announced today on Twitter that he will be training at the KnokX Pro Academy in Los Angeles, which is ran by Rikishi and Black Pearl.

"I have officially decided to train with my boy @TheREALRIKISHI at his gym in California to get ready for the @wwe. LOCKED IN," Bow Wow tweeted.

Rikishi has not responded to Bow Wow's tweet as of this writing.

Bow Wow, who turns 34 in early March, then posted a follow-up tweet and knocked some of the wrestlers who have had exchanges with him on Twitter.

"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 [tears of joy emoji x 2] (million dollar man laugh) how you on RAW with 50k followers. Something not adding up. [tears of joy emoji]," he wrote.


He then wrote in another follow-up tweet, "I got these wrestlers in their feelings before they even drink a protein shake this morning [tears of joy emoji]"

Bow Wow has also been tweeting about a potential WWE match with fellow rapper Bad Bunny, who has been training for an in-ring run and is rumored to team with Damian Priest to face The Miz and John Morrison at WrestleMania 37. Bow Wow tweeted Priest today and said he has Morrison's back.

"Hey @ArcherOfInfamy tell your little pet bad bunny I've been watching... and im not impressed. [eyes emoji] [rabbit face emoji] [no entry sign emoji] ... i got @TheRealMorrison back! Stop hiding from the REAL mr bunny," he wrote.

Priest responded, "Ha! Not impressed huh? Every Monday we're living what you're chasing homie. But by all means, keep shooting blanks on Twitter. [direct hit emoji] #LiveForever #WWERaw"

Bow Wow then wrote back and said he will see Priest soon.

"Don't have to chase whats in place. See you soon my friend [winking face emoji]," he wrote.
