Over the past year or so, late night has really taken over television. And we mean that literally. Ideas that sprang from recurring bits with famous people on late night talk shows are now their own programs. Lip Sync Battle has been going strong for a couple of seasons now. There’s a full-fledged Carpool Karaoke spin-off. And we’re already one season deep into TBS’ Drop the Mic, where celebrities have rap battles against each other. No, really.
And yet we STILL don’t have a full half-hour every week devoted to celebrities reading mean tweets. Shameful.
Anyway, the aforementioned Drop the Mic will reportedly give us something we’ve been craving for a long time: the first official crossover/battle between WWE Superstars and cast members from GLOW, possibly the greatest Netflix series of all time.
According to Headline Planet (and also according to the talent listing on the audience tickets sign-up page), TBS will tape an episode of Drop the Mic on Sunday, March 18, for an upcoming season two episode that will have a four-on-four rap battle between eight women you know and love dearly. (And if you don’t love them dearly, that’s on you.)
The team of Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Alicia Fox and Carmella (the latter of whom does numerous freestyle raps on Total Divas alongside Big Cass, which I hate that I have to mention) will take on Kate Nash, Jackie Tohn, Sanita Mani and Britney Young (who on GLOW play Britannica, Melrose, Beirut and Machu Picchu, respectively). It’s going to be absolutely incredible, and since all four WWE women have been cast members at one time, I’m choosing to view this as an official crossover between GLOW and Total Divas. So there.
And did we mention that tickets to the taping are still available? Uh, yeah. You should probably sign up for that and watch the Bella Twins do some freestyle raps live and in person.
