Rick Ross is the latest in a long line of Hip-Hop acts to crossover into the world of professional wrestling, appearing on AEW Dynamite.
On Wednesday evening (Nov. 2) Rozay pulled up to AEW’s Boston show, joining the crew for a backstage segment. He told commentator Tony Schiavone to address him as “The Biggest Boss” while he explained that “Sneaky” Swerve Strickland will be one of the biggest stars in the industry. He also wants to ensure the wrestler becomes the “largest recording artist in the world.”
“We’re keeping it positive here today,” Rick Ross said to Schiavone. I’m here for one reason and one reason only, I want to make this clear: making sure Swerve is not only the biggest wrestler in the industry but also the largest recording artist in the world. That’s why we’re here; we’re celebrating today and that’s why we’re here. The biggest.”
