Shawn Michaels Invites Kendrick Lamar & Drake on ‘WWE NXT’ to ‘Settle This Thing’

Drake and Kendrick Lamar have been going back and forth for what feels like forever (it’s only been about a month). And each entry from the two heavyweights has gotten more and more personal.

On Lamar’s latest “Not Like Us,” the Compton rapper brings up wrestler Shawn Michaels’ finishing move, rapping, “Sweet Chin Music, and I won’t pass the aux,” in reference to kicking Drake in the figurative face with his barrage of diss tracks. The bar is also a nod to the Montreal Screw Job, an incident that involved The Heartbreak Kid and the WWE conspiring to unseat Canadian wrestler Brett “The Hitman” Hart as champion.

Just like the rest of us, Michaels has been paying attention to the feud, which started with Lamar teaming up with Future and Metro Boomin to diss the Canadian rapper on “Like That.” Michaels took to X and chimed in with a post that extended an invitation to both rappers “to settle this thing” on WWE NXT and even offered to mediate a resolution if they aren’t interested in stepping into the squared circle.

Since the likelihood of this going down is next to zero, Instagram user @shady00018_ made this hilarious video of how a wrestling match between Rap’s Big 3 might go, with J. Cole hitting the eject button while Lamar and Drake have a good ol’ fashioned no-holds-barred wrestling match.

It feels like this back-and-forth between Drake and Kendrick has reached every corner of the pop culture universe with the songs being played during sports broadcasts and actors offering up famous movie costumes for motivation.

MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch would’ve had a field day with this beef.
