Professional wrestling is a leading force in the entertainment world, especially in America, and for decades, it has taken over airwaves. Tens of thousands of people flock to sports venues weekly in order to see their favorite characters go at it in the ring, and often, wrestling companies tap into the celebrity market to bring more visibility. We’ve watched as music artists have added their moves to matches or made cameo appearances during live shows, and recently, Kevin Gates packed a punch for the AEW.
Things took a turn when Mark Sterling and Tony Nese approached Gates and asked him to sign a petition axing Strickland from the AEW, but when Gates refused to sign, Sterling began verbally attacking the rapper. He told him he’s “untrustworthy” and added that Gates’s “music sucks,” causing the Louisiana star to walk past the barricade and confront his new foe. After a tense standoff with Nese, Gates grabbed Nese’s necklace and gave him a quick punch to the face.
It made for an entertaining, yet staged moment that fans couldn’t stop talking about online. Check it out below.
