WWE’s Day 1 pay-per-view saw The Migos grace the pro wrestling stage for the first time. However, tragedy struck as Takeoff was shot dead at a bowling alley in Downtown, Houston on Tuesday, November 1st, 2022. Sadly, that nixed plans WWE had for the famous rap trio.
Takeoff appeared alongside fellow group members Offset, and his uncle Quavo to accompany Randy Orton and Matt Riddle for their RAW Tag Team Championship match against the Street Profits at WWE Day 1. It is also worth noting that their track ‘Straightenin‘ was the official theme song of the event.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE had plans to bring back the Migos group for Day 1 pay-per-view once again in 2023 before the unforeseen circumstances and cancellation of the show didn’t happen.
“With the heavily reported death of rapper Takeoff of the Migos, it should be noted he performed on the WWE 1/1 show in Atlanta. Takeoff was killed in a shooting on 11/1. One person said that had the Day One show taken place in Atlanta this year that there was talk they would be invited back.”
The wrestling world continues to mourn the death of one of the talented artists in the music industry and sends out their condolences to Takeoff’s family for their loss. WWE also cancelled the Day 1 pay-per-view, turning it into a house show instead, but the company still obviously had the Migos in mind to make their eventual return.
