Lil Scrappy To Wrestle Baron Black At Battle Slam’s “The Takeover” Event
Lil' Scrappy born Darryl Raynard Richardson III will be the latest celebrity to step into the squared circle for a wrestling match. The rapper will take on Baron Black at “The Takeover” on July 28.
Lil Scrappy will touch down his hometown of Atlanta for the upcoming Battle Slam event. Previously, the Love & Hop Hip alum confronted Baron Black at Battle Slam’s “Fight For ATL” on June 12.
“When is this going to stop? When are we going to stop letting these celebrities come into this sport and do whatever the hell they want to do, however the hell they want to do it?” asked Baron Black in a promo video posted to social media.
“We got lame-ass YouTubers, has-been boxers, 50-year-old jackasses, and now we got rappers coming in here, running amok, doing whatever the hell they please… But that has to stop now. There have to be consequences and repercussions for these actions!” added the Atlanta-bred professional wrestler.
Baron Black then specifically called out Lil Scrappy. The All Elite Wrestling (AEW) regular promised to make Scrappy’s childhood dreams come true by facing off with the “Money in the Bank” hitmaker at “The Takeover” showcase.
