Wale’s coming to help NXT deliver the smoke

New, comments

Three title matches, a Pre-Show, and a Watch Along. NXT’s already loaded up for their first two-hour episode on USA opposite TNT’s AEW Dynamite. Now, they’re adding the host of the greatest rap battle in pro wrestling history!?!?

Wale is also a bestselling, award-winning hip hop artist in his own right, and a huge wrestling fan. In addition to his WWE appearances, he’s also a frequent attendee of indie shows, and hosts his Walemania event annually during WrestleMania week. His motives aren’t entirely unselfish, though. WWE.com reminds us Wale has an album, Wow…That’s Crazy, dropping Oct. 11.

Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins are both glad he’ll be there to rep Street Profits as they try to reclaim the NXT Tag titles from Undisputed ERA’s Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish:

Should be a wild night all around. There will be smoke.
