"The Man is coming to #Billions," the post reads. "Catch @BeckyLynchWWE in the season premiere this Sunday. Only on Showtime."

Billions co-creator Brian Koppelman had invited Lynch to appear on the series while wearing a Lynch shirt at a TV panel in 2019. Lynch accepted the invitation via Twitter.

"Great looking shirt, Brian. Let's do this! #Billions #TheManWillComeAround," she wrote.

Season 5 will also feature Julianna Margulies, Corey Stoll and Akili McDowell. Margulies will play Catherine Brant, an Ivy League sociology professor and bestselling author, with Stoll as Michael Prince, a business titan from a small town in Indiana, and McDowell as Savion Williams, a teenager growing up in Bobby Axelrod's (Damian Lewis) hometown.

Billions is co-created by Koppelman, David Levien and Andrew Ross Sorkin. Lewis and Paul Giamatti star as Axelrod and Chuck Rhoades, respectively, who will have a renewed rivalry in Season 5.

Showtime released a trailer for the season in March that shows Alexrod calling himself a monster.

Lynch is a four-time women's champion in WWE. She started using the nickname "The Man" in 2018.
