Bow Wow is ready to turn it up.

The rapper/actor/aspiring pro wrestler posted the following on Twitter, claiming he’s going to train with WWE Hall Of Famer Rikishi to start his career as a pro wrestler.

I have officially decided to train with my boy @TheREALRIKISHI at his gym in California to get ready for the @wwe. LOCKED IN

Rikishi owns KnokX Pro Entertainment, a pro wrestling promotion and training academy based in Los Angeles.

Bow Wow (Shad Moss) has been grabbing headlines since last week when he announced his intentions to become a professional wrestler and win the WWE Tag Team Championship with Rey Mysterio.

In addition to naming his potential tag team partner, Bow Wow has also found himself with a few potential feuds, as Retribution’s T-BAR is one of many names that called him out (and talked trash on ‘Like Mike’ to get cheap heat in the process). More recently, the hip-hop star has been mixing it up on social media with the “Archer Of Infamy” Damian Priest, but he says they should all be happy he’s going back and forth with them because he’s giving them a bigger spotlight.
