Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok prop Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira has expressed his interest in joining the WWE.
During an Instagram live chat with Superstar Kofi Kingston, Mtawarira expressed an interest in joining the WWE Universe. Born in Ghana, Kofi is one of the few African stars to compete in WWE and the first to win one of the promotions primary belts.
The discussion the two had included similarities in their individual journeys, as they both left their home countries at a young age to find success.
“There he is, the Beast!” is how Kofi started the chat with Mtawarira, as the two stars had the conversation to celebrate each other’s sporting achievements.
Mtawarira spoke of his interest in WWE after Kofi acknowledged that some of his fellow Superstars actually started in Rugby.
The WWE Superstar asked if Beast would one day consider stepping into the ring and Beast responded that he has been a fan since he was young and it would be an amazing experience, given the fact that he looks up to WWE legends like Hulk Hogan and The Rock. “To actually get the opportunity to come to the WWE, even on a once-off appearance, I would be so excited. Let’s see what happens man, maybe you can open some doors!” Beast responded.
Springboks captain, Siya Kolisi questioned his former team mate’s chances of WWE success by commenting “Kofi will fly kick your a**.”
Kofi then advised Beast on how he could potentially prepare for a WWE appearance, vowing to do what he can to make it possible.
