Wrestling has a funny way of popping up in the places you least expect to find it.
Two years ago it was Kendall Jenner "joining" the nWo Wolfpac. This time around it's Grammy Award-winning rapper Cardi B using the iconic catchphrase of the late, great Eddie Guerrero.
It all started with a Tweet. On May 19th, Cardi B released a minute long video of her performing the new DJ Khaled track Wish Wish, on which she and 21 Savage are featured, in what looks to be some sort of backstage lounge area.

Naturally, this garnered quite a bit of attention, but it was the humorous comment of one follower that got a response out of the superstar.
The account @litlifestylz (real name unknown, presumably not a trio of emojis) poked fun at the nondescript setting by comparing it to the GM Offices seen in the now 15-year-old PS2 game, SmackDown! vs. RAW. The superstar replied to the remark last night by showing off her wrestling knowledge, summoning the words of Latino Heat himself.

WWE's Dana Brooke and Dolph Ziggler were among the first to react to the unexpected reference.

In addition to the new song and music video, Cardi B can be seen this September in the Jennifer Lopez-led film, Hustlers.
