You’ve seen Lavar Ball on ESPN. You’ve seen him on Fox Sports. If there is a camera, Ball is there.

That includes the WWE. 

Ball took his shirt off and matched up with The Miz on Monday’s “WWE Raw” in Los Angeles.  

For what it’s worth, Ball has already played a great heel so it’s no surprise to see him take up wrestling. Two of Ball’s sons, LaMelo and Lonzo, made an appearance with him on the show as well. LaMelo Ball, 15, was caught using a racial slur twice and the WWE later issued a statement to the LA Times, saying his language was not scripted and did not reflect the values of the WWE brand. 

Here’s also a reminder that President Trump appeared on WWE. 

So if Ball ever decided to run for office one day, there’s already been a precedent.
