Kevin Gates has a future in wrestling when his rap career ends. The 36-year-old Louisiana native dropped AEW wrestling star Tony Nese with a roundhouse right hook.
According to Vlad TV, the incident happened during AEW's weekly primetime broadcast on TNT at Gas South Arena in Duluth, Georgia.
The AEW had just crowned Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland as the new tag team champions of the world.
But Mark Sterling and Tony Nese disagreed. They jumped into the ring with a petition claiming that Lee and Strickland used foul play to win the tag team championship belts.
Kevin, who was sitting in the front row with girlfriend Jojo Zarur (pictured above), declined to sign the petition.
Then Tony got in Kevin's face, which resulted in Kevin throwing a right hook that put the professional wrestler flat on his back.
Tony recovered quickly. Only his feelings and pride were hurt. Word is that wrestling managers are recruiting Kevin to fight for their teams.

Jojo Zarur insists she didn't break up Kevin and Dreka Gates' unhappy home.
She was spotted holding hands with the promiscuous rapper, which sparked rumors that his marriage to Dreka was over.
Jojo, one of the original Hip-Hop: Miami cast members, left the show in 2020 after numerous cat fights with other cast members.

She made headlines recently when she was seen out with Kevin, a married man.
But Jojo insists the homewrecker rumors are not true.
"Lol he's actually single. Get your facts straight," Jojo responded to a fan who wrote, "he's a married man. This ain't a good look."

Meanwhile, Dreka is apparently unbothered by the rumors. She has yet to respond to reports that she is in a longterm relationship with her personal trainer.
Both Dreka and Kevin have been accused of cheating throughout their marriage.
If you recall, Kevin was linked to R&B singer Monica in the past. He even appeared in her reality TV series back in the day. They both denied being in a relationship with each other.

Kevin married Dreka Haynes, his high school sweetheart, in 2015. He once referred to her as his "best friend" and "business partner."
"I tell her about everything, and she's my business partner. Yeah, she's my business partner and my life partner. I don't do girlfriends. That's a fling," he said in 2015.
