Published Dec 29, 2014Eccentric rapper and cornrow enthusiast Riff Raff dropped his album Neon iCon earlier this year, but he's now set his sights on a career beyond the realm of music. He's training to be a professional wrestler with Hulk Hogan.
The announcement came through Twitter over the weekend, as Hogan revealed that he was looking forward to training with the rapper. Riff Raff responded by announcing his intentions to unleash his "neon pythons" upon the WWE.
Hogan's son, Nick, got in on the action too, posting a video of his father and wrestling personality Jimmy Hart hyping up the "neon mania" and talking up Riff Raff's future career as a wrestler. You can scroll to the bottom of the page to watch the clip.
As far as we know, the foray into the sport of spandex and steel chairs won't interfere with the rapper's recently announced plans to release two albums next year.
