Wale’s WaleMania VI Coming To Dallas, Texas: ‘I Love Doing This For Fans’


Wale’s wrestling-focused Walemania event is returning for its sixth annual celebration. The event will take place in Dallas, Texas on March 31 and will again be a pro-wrestling-themed music powerhouse event that will be brought to the next level this year thanks to a newfound partnership with Spotify. This will be the first time the event has happened since prior to the pandemic in 2019.

The event will be opened by The Ringer’s Masked Man Show Podcast, which is a professional wrestling recap show hosted by David Shoemaker and Kazeem Famuyide that always features exciting guests from the world of Hip Hop and professional wrestling. It was announced this year that Foot Locker is also dropping exclusive merch for the event, merch that combines Wale’s love of both wrestling and sneaker culture.

“WaleMania has always been a passion of mine because it combines all of my loves into one place during a weekend that I always have the most fun,” Wale said in a statement. “I love doing this for fans of myself and my music as well as the fans of professional wrestling because at the end of the day, I’m one of you too. I love that WaleMania has become the unofficial welcome to the big weekend party so I’ve got a few things up my sleeve to make sure this one is unforgettable.”

Guests this year will include Swerve Strickland, Ricky Starks, IMPACT Wrestling’s Machine Gun Karl Anderson, Chris Bey, AJ Gray, Big Swole, Joey Janela, Impact Knockouts Champion Tasha Steelz, Luke Gallows, and so many more. Wale will also hit the stage to perform some songs alongside a few friends.
