AJ Francis has been counting down the days until his non-compete with WWE expires. However, Francis refuses to fade into obscurity in the meantime, and has come up with a new way to ensure fans don’t forget him.
Francis, formerly knows as Hit Row’s Top Dolla, took to social media this morning to share his new promo. In addition, it seems that Francis has been compiling a “list of some of the best performers in and around this industry.”
It seems that Francis is just sick of injustice, and has decided to take it upon himself to fix the way things are. WWE recently let go of several staff members under its employ, as well as numerous performers, some just days after being signed on.
It seems that Francis is going after these entertainers primarily, the ones “that never seem to get the treatment they deserve for one reason or another,” and recruiting them for his own promo.
See, I’m a leader in my community. Aren’t you? Now go ahead and say the name that make the shorties go crazy, the most shady, Frankie baby. He’s making a list. He’s checking it twice. Don’t give a damn if you’re naughty or nice. Frankie baby’s coming to town.
In addition, Francis also called out racially-motivated violence, mentioning Emmett Till and Tamir Rice, both victims of police violence. Francis recalled the time he himself came close to being a victim of the same.
At 12 years old, I learned the term mistaken identity when me and my dad had guns pressed to our heads by cops in the McDonald’s parking lot. See, I was one false move from being a 12-year-old turned hashtag like Tamir Rice.
While acknowledging that “racism ain’t getting worse, it’s just getting filmed,” Francis declared that he intends to be a “pillar in [his] community.” It seems that this drive has played a large part in him forming his new promo. Check out his posts below.
