So much for that. WrestleMania and the season building up to it have a long history of celebrities appearing. All the way back to the original show in 1985, there have been all kinds of celebrities, both A list and lower, who get involved with WWE to start hyping the show. It seems to be the case again this year with some Saturday Night Live cast members getting involved, but one name doesn’t seem to be likely.
Rumors had been circulating that Eminem would be appearing on WWE TV due to a deal made to have Eminem produce the soundtrack for the upcoming WWE2K20 video game. However, it appears that this is not true and the idea has only been discussed with little progress being made at the moment. There is a possibility of an appearance taking place in the future, but it seems to be a long way off. Eminem’s team has put out a statement denying the reports, courtesy of Ringsidenews.com:
There was a very brief, exploratory conversation that involved a third party and 2K Sports, not Eminem’s team. It has not gone beyond preliminary discussions, and any reports to the contrary are false. Right now there are no plans to further pursue it.
Opinion: I could see this taking place down the line, though it wouldn’t surprise me if it never happened. It would be cool for WWE to get a bigger name entertainer like this on the show, but it’s probably not the easiest thing to do given a full concert schedule. Eminem appearing would draw some extra eyes to the product, though, if this is going to happen, saving it for October and FOX might be a better move.
