A commercial for the 2021 WWE Summerslam PPV aired during the May 28th 2021 edition of Friday Night Smackdown. The song “Up” by rapper Cardi B was played during the commercial.
According to Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast, there are plans for Cardi B to be the host of this year’s Summerslam event.
During an appearance on the Rich Eisen show in April, Stephanie McMahon expressed interest in having WWE work with Cardi B…
“From a celebrity standpoint, in addition to the ones we’ve already worked with, I think it could be really cool to work with Cardi B. She had a tweet she put out not long ago which was in reference to her name on the show. I think she’s so colorful herself and so vivacious and full of life that I think she would even bring it up a notch in WWE. I think she’d be awesome.” (quote courtesy of RingsideNews.com)
