ORIGINAL: During Sunday’s episode of Hey! (EW) with RJ City, AEW wrestler Swerve Strickland revealed that he’s interested in facing rapper Bow Wow, who has been appearing lately for Jonathan Gresham & Baron Black’s TERMINUS promotion. He said,
“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.”
He continued, “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 has been training with WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi in recent months, and he’s traded barbs with T-BAR and MACE on Twitter.
