Olajide “JJ” Olatunji, better known by his gaming handle KSI, first came to fame through his FIFA Football gameplay and commentary. Recently the comedian/rapper has been climbing into the squared circle (albeit somewhat reluctantly) to learn basic pro wrestling moves, including bumps, strikes, grips, body slams and drop kicks.

KSI’s trainer in the video series is Darrell Allen, a pro wrestler and head coach at Progress Wrestling in Camberwell. His long-haired sparring partner in the black speedos is another Progress Wrestling product, William “The Pastor” Eaver.

KSI’s wrestling training began with a lesson on how to fall correctly.

KSI was taught how to slam his opponent by none other than The Pastor.

The Pastor also introduced KSI to that ancient staple of pro wrestling – the dropkick.

It’s unlikely that the wrestling skills KSI acquired have prepared him for a serious opponent, but he is more than qualified to pose for a picture with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Incidentally, Johnson just enjoyed a nice weekend at the box office. Despite its subject matter, San Andreas was anything but a disaster, as it raked in $53.2 million. Johnson’s other film, Furious 7, surpassed $1.5 billion in global box office and is on target to become the third-highest-grossing film of all time. Do you smell what the Rock is cooking?
