The first domino has dropped in the relaunch of FS1’s “Undisputed.”
As The Post first reported, Shannon Sharpe left the program he’d co-hosted with Skip Bayless since 2016 after the NBA Finals in June.
Bayless revealed on his podcast on Thursday that his friend, rapper Lil Wayne, will have a weekly segment on the show each Friday.
“My brother Wayne is at least into the relaunch as I am,” Bayless said.
“He is heart and soul into the relaunch.”
Bayless said the rapper may not always be in the show’s Los Angeles studio given his touring schedule, but that he will be on the show each week for a 12-15 minute segment.
“If he’s hot, if he’s rolling, who knows, maybe we’ll keep him for a segment, if he has the time,” Bayless said.
“That you can look forward to. He is so deep when it comes to sports. He doesn’t yell or scream, but he does get emotional. And you hang on his every word because trust me he has thought through every single word.
“I like to think that I see things and say things that others don’t. Wayne is my match. That’s why I love him so much. That’s why we text so much about sports. We’re kindred spirits, but we do see things differently, but very deeply.”
The Post’s Andrew Marchand reported last month that Bayless and Richard Sherman have had talks about the Super Bowl champion potentially joining the show.
While Bayless and Sherman once had a fractious debate on ESPN’s “First Take,” the report said that incident was water under the bridge.
As for Sharpe, both he and Bayless’ other former partner, Stephen A. Smith, have publicly said that they want to collaborate on “First Take” together, but no deal for that has materialized yet.
