The 20 Hardest Wrestling References In Hip-Hop History

Hip-Hop and wrestling are practically the perfect marriage of severe trash-talking, grandiose proclamations, and a whole lot of outlandish fashion fits. Pusha T, Wale, Flatbush Zombies, Smoke DZA, Action Bronson, etc. regularly hop on the mic to verbalize their love for the athletes that go hard in the squared circle. And before them, notable MCs such as LL Cool J and Jadakiss also made sure to drop a few bars about the very best in professional wrestling. There’s a whole bunch of memorable bars out there that truly get a Road Warrior pop out of us every time they blast through our headphones. We’ve got 20 of the very best ones from some of the greatest (and most slept on) rappers that know a thing or two about the letters WWF/E, WCW, and other premier wrestling companies.
