Wale isn’t new to the world of professional wrestling. The Grammy-nominated artist has been a fan for quite some time. Last year, he was the host of a rap battle between the New Day and the Usos, who were battling for the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championships at the time.
A little more than a year later, and he’s returned to the WWE, this time to work the commentary desk alongside Percy Watson, Nigel McGuinness, and Vic Joseph. WWE’s official announcement can be seen below.
