Update on Eminem/WWE report Submitted by Aaron Rift on 03/13/2019 at 10:22 AM
As previously noted, WWE had reportedly reached a deal with rapper Eminem for the WWE2K20 video game and a possible Smackdown Live appearance. However, Eminem's rep denied the story.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com, who first reported the story, issued the following response:
"The hilarity of us getting threats OF legal threats for publishing a story featuring information that Eminemís group, 2K, management and WWE didnít want out there. We didnít sign any NDAs. We are free to report that information.
If Emís team pulls or pulled the deal Iíll feel bad for those who put it together, but yep Ė a deal was agreed upon today for all the things I mentioned, regardless of whoís rep is saying what.
Threatening to THREATEN legal action? Send us the C&D, donít give us the review copy or credentials and move on. A story got leaked, thereís damage control because people are mad."
