WWE will be in Los Angeles, California for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw so, of course, the company is trying to bring in a big star for a guest appearance on the show.

Oh, wait, it’s just Lavar Ball.

That’s according to a report from Pro Wrestling Sheet. Negotiations have apparently been ongoing and it looks likely we’ll be seeing him pushing his “Big Baller Brand” on WWE’s flagship show.

If you, dear wrestling fan, aren’t aware of who Lavar Ball is, he is, essentially, the most overbearing father in sports who specializes in making outrageous claims. His son, Lonzo, was drafted number two overall by the Los Angeles Lakers — a big reason WWE wants him on this show — and Lavar was booed out of the building as he was leaving the Barclays Center at the NBA Draft.

He’s a big talker people love to hate.

Imagine him standing across from, say, Paul Heyman, who will be on Raw this week.
