Megan Thee Stallion is the Mainstream Star WWE Should Bring in Next

WWE has never shied away from inviting artists, celebrities and athletes to join their ranks. Whether it's for one appearance or for part-time action, stars such as Cyndi Lauper, Bad Bunny and Snoop Dogg have graced the squared circle. But what if the biggest women's rapper in the world came and added her charisma to the promotion?

During WWE's Road to WrestleMania, multi-talented wrestler, actor and mogul Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stated that wrestling was cool and electrifying again. Though he gave himself credit for it as the "Final Boss," there were a lot of factors leading to the company's Renaissance era. A change in leadership, enthralling storylines and a fresh presentation of production has certainly given WWE a modern kick in the right direction. But one other factor that feeds into their recent successes is the crossover appeal they have attained via sports and other mediums of entertainment. It is again the norm to see any wrestling star at a football game or a red-carpet premiere.

But one medium that has consistently shown love for in-ring action is Rap and Hip-hop music. The braggadocious art form finds ways to include wrestling references from the underground battle scene to its mainstream airwaves. WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels even found his Sweet Chin Music finisher in the center of the white-hot beef between Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Acclaimed rappers such as Snoop Dogg and Bad Bunny have even stepped into the ring as athletes. Though there have been great strides in the "Rap and Wrestling" era for men, fans have yet to see a female artist step into the squared circle and stand toe to toe with the women superstars. If WWE wants to continue its winning streak with Hip-hop and its fans, they must pursue the biggest female rapper in the game: Megan Thee Stallion. Let's explore why.

Her Past Brushes with Wrestling Culture

One reason why the Grammy-winning lyricist could be a perfect mainstream star for WWE is her past experiences with wrestling culture. Something that audiences cannot take their eyes off of when it comes to Megan is her style. With jumpsuits, bikini tops, cosplays and everything in between, Megan's wardrobe is absolutely vibrant. But many fans and detractors have compared her fashion choices to those of a 2000s WWE Diva. Recently, a pink ensemble she wore during her tour caught the attention of former SmackDown Women's Champion Naomi on X (FKA Twitter) due to their similarities.

With these comparisons akin to women's wrestlers of two different generations, her aesthetic could definitely be highlighted in WWE today. Megan has also been linked in pictures with two of the biggest names in wrestling. Three years ago, the wrestling community was rocked when the Hot Girl Coach was pictured backstage with The EST of WWE Bianca Belair before her 2021 performance at the Lollapalooza music festival. Megan was even seen chilling at the Crunchyroll Anime Awards with new AEW TBS Champion Mercedes Moné in March. With all of these moments, it would seem that wrestling might be calling Megan's name.

Her Athleticism and Its Place in The Ring

In the past, people would not fully grasp the amount of preparation that would go into crafting a live performance. It is now normal to see social media posts or documentaries detailing the amount of work that artists put in for their fans. Megan Thee Stallion is no exception. Along with being featured on the cover of Women's Health this past April, she also shares her fitness regimen on multiple platforms. From her intense workouts involving weightlifting, running, and Pilates to her healthy eating habits, Megan shows excellent discipline in taking care of herself so that she can perform at high levels. Why not bring that type of preparation to wrestling? Could you imagine Megan training with multi-time champion Natalya the same way countless others have? Or what if she documented herself training at the Performance Center with NXT stars?

With the right tools, Megan could develop her body into an in-ring weapon and become invincible. She could challenge the likes of Tiffany Stratton or team up with Bianca Belair, Jade Cargill and Naomi as "The Big 4." That would be an incredible visual that could headline any premium live event. Megan checks all of the boxes of a perfect WWE superstar and seeing her athletic attributes on display would definitely be worth the investment.

Bridging The Gap Between Two Diverse Fanbases

Megan's fanbase is one of Hip-hop's most diverse. Her lyrics, style, philosophies, and personality resonate to the most street-smart of folks or the quirkiest of characters. With her cultural reach in the worlds of music, dance, fashion, comic books, anime, and video games, the groundbreaking artist has proven that people can be multi-faceted and not lose the core of what makes them unique. This represents the wrestling community as well. Something that fandoms of anime, video games, and wrestling have in common is the fact that they feel othered due to their passion and love for these things.

With an artist like Megan being a part of the fold of WWE, it could unite these fandoms more. It could also bring in fans of Hip-hop who used to watch wrestling as children or those who never thought to give it a try before. Megan making an appearance in WWE will also have the effect of being highlighted in other forms of media such as the long-standing magazine Essence or urban-centered radio platforms such as The Breakfast Club or Hot 97's Ebro in The Morning. There could also be anime cosplayers who love Megan and might find kindred spirits in the personalities of Rhea Ripley or Zelina Vega. Either way, the presence of the award-winning rapper would bring fascination, intrigue, and fun to WWE. With artists such as Sexyy Red, Saweetie, and the like making appearances, perhaps it is only a matter of time before the "Savage" supernova makes her grand debut.
