John Cena might have competition for the best battle rapper in wrestling history.
Popular UK battle rapper Shotty Horroh announced on social media that he is following his dream to try and become a wrestler. It is unclear just how serious Shotty is about his wrestling career or if he's having a go on social media -- you can never be too sure -- but he has tweeted about his training, his desire to film his journey, and wanting to wrestle in front of fans.
He even teased showing up to answer Cody's open challenge for the TNT Title on AEW Dynamite, though that's unlikely to happen as he's based in the UK and on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ok so yeah so, cats out of the bag. I am in training to finally get in the pro-wrestling ring. It’s been my dream since I was 4 and if you know me you know it’s my main passion. I want to do a weekly documentary on my journey. What should I call the documentary?— SHOTTY HORROH (@ShottyHorroh) June 14, 2020
Wrestling is the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I’m under no illusions about this game, it’s tough, no days off and I ain’t shit in this business Til I do some shit in this business. You know what I do when I want something though.— SHOTTY HORROH (@ShottyHorroh) June 15, 2020
I have so much respect for wrestlers.
When I put the crew together, none of your matches are finishing, you’re all getting rushed. Your boots, your CAPES, your fuckin belts, all mine. Any promotion, anytime. When we show up to the showdown we show off. Let’s shake it up.— SHOTTY HORROH (@ShottyHorroh) June 14, 2020
Shotty is one of the top names in UK battle rap history with his 2012 battle against Arsonal amassing over 12 million views. He recently returned to the battle ring after a four-year hiatus to face John John Da Don.
It is unknown when Shotty will show up to the showdown to show off when the show's on.
