Remember those rumors about Eminem working with WWE in 2008? Those were unfounded rumors, according to Eminem’s publicist. However, he has apparently worked out a deal to work with WWE in 2019.
Fightful is reporting that the WWE and the recording-artist have reached a deal that would include music contributions for WWE 2K20.
The deal also calls for Eminem to appear on an episode of SmackDown Live this fall when the show moves to the FOX Network. The story also notes that WWE is planning on creating a custom championship belt for Eminem.
This is obviously a huge get for WWE because Eminem doesn’t make a ton of appearances.
Eminem is considered by many to be one of the most influential artists of all-time. He has received fifteen Grammy Awards and he was ranked ninth on MTV’s Greatest MCs of All-Time.
