According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Wale wants to become his own Vince McMahon. The D.C. rapper, who is as noted a wrestling fan as he is a sneakerhead or fan of his chosen profession has attended numerous WWE PPVs and events in the past two years, including Summerslam in Brooklyn over the weekend. He’s also delivered fades to fans, hosted his own WrestleMania themed concert, “Wale-Mania” and wants to do it again at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas.

But the bigger news? Wale wants to be his own Paul Heyman circa ECW ’93.

I saw rap star Wale this past week, who is a huge pro wrestling fan (and a long-time reader of this publication), and he is considering starting a wrestling company. There had been rumors months ago over WrestleMania week about that, and Jim Ross even referenced them in a speech he did in Santa Clara over Mania week. Wale did a concert over Mania week, Wale-Mania, that was a big success, including tons of top talent, past and present, being there. There may have been a WWE directive because nobody from that promotion was there. His people indicated they were looking at doing another concert over Mania week this coming year. Court Bauer, who worked with Wale in promoting the event and is close with him, said they were looking at Thursday or Friday before Mania.
