Mutawarira to feature at WWE

Zimbabwe’s own Tendai ‘Beast’ Mutawarira who rose to fame as a rugby World Champion for South Africa’- has revealed plans to feature at World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

Mutawarira revealed this during a live Instagram chat with Ghana-born American WWE superstar Kofi Kingston.

Kingston and Mtawarira were having discussions relating to inspire upcoming young Africans.

“I can relate in so many ways to you because you wanted to achieve an impossible dream, as they say, and we made it possible. The bigger picture is to inspire African young kids to chase their dreams like us,” Mtawarira said.

“For me, the greater part of my legacy is to unlock the potential in the next African future leaders. That’s what it’s all about now, helping the next guy to make it, the next girl, so I can relate to you in so many ways,” the 35-year-old added.

Beast is also a Castle Lager Rugby Championship winner and Currie Cup winner with the Sharks while he has 117 caps with the Springboks, making him the third most capped Springbok of all time behind Victor Matfield and Bryan Habana.

Like Beast,  Kofi (39) moved with his family from Ghana to the US to become the first African-born WWE Champion at Wrestlemania 35 in 2019.
