Rapper Bow Wow has been a huge pro wrestling fan for several years now. He is set to achieve his dream of becoming a WWE Superstar as the rapper is currently training under WWE Hall Of Famer Rikishi.
While speaking on Heels Pops & Chairshots’ Shooting the Ish podcast, Bow Wow talked about his love for pro wrestling. The rapper noted that he lost interest in pro wrestling after The Rock and John Cena left WWE.
Bow Wow then revealed that it was Bray Wyatt’s The Fiend that ultimately made him interested in pro wrestling again. He noted that The Fiend was a breath of fresh air to him and got him back into pro wrestling.
“When Bray Wyatt became The Fiend, for me it messed me up,” said Bow Wow. “I was like ‘now we’re talking.’ He’s there, he’s not there, the spin on the Fun House thing? That mask is probably one of the best masks that I’ve seen in a long time. He drew me back in. I bought WWE 2K19 and 20 just so I could play as The Fiend.
“It was just sad that WWE was so much a part of my life and then it was gone. It hurt me. I wasn’t seeing anything that was keeping me. The storylines became very cheesy. But the Fiend character was just a fresh breath of air. It was something new. He got me back into it.”
We will have to see when Bow Wow will make his WWE debut as there is no doubt fans will be excited to see him in action.
