Bow Wow is trading in music for a career in wrestling.
The hip-hop star has announced plans to join World Wrestling Entertainment after retiring from rap. Taking to Twitter on Monday (Feb. 8), Bow Wow said it’s been a lifelong dream of his to wrestle in WWE.
“Now i know this might sound crazy… BUT… after i drop my last album. I will focus on tv and film. And joining the @WWE its been a life long childhood dream to wrestle in the WWE!!!!” he tweeted.
The 33-year-old is already thinking of his post-rap career and envisions teaming up with professional wrestler Rey Mysterio to take on his opponents in the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship, the most prestigious prize in tag team wrestling.

But before he steps in the ring, he plans to release one more album. Last month, Bow Wow announced his final project Before 30, which will be narrated by Snoop Dogg.
“I’ma do one more album. It’s gonna be the last one and it’s gonna be called Before 30, and I’ma have Snoop narrate the whole thing,” he told Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning.” “So it’s gonna be kind of a different project, 10 songs.”
In 2016, Bow Wow said he was done with rap. “I always said years ago I’d retire from music before 30,” he tweeted. “I just can’t see myself at 30 years old rapping.”
