WWE Summerslam: Even before the build-up for WWE Summerslam got underway, it was reported that WWE was planning to make the PPV their best of the year. There were rumors that besides the top WWE Superstars, celebrities will also be attending the picturesque PPV event. However, now it seems like no celebrities will be attending WWE Summerslam 2021.
WWE Summerslam: Cardi B was roped in to host the PPV, but the deal got cancelled
Rapper Cardi B was the first celebrity WWE approached for this year’s Summerslam. She was set to host the PPV event, but later the deal got abolished due to the raper’s pregnancy. WWE also failed to rope in Boxing Legend Mike Tyson for the colossal event. However, earlier this morning it was revealed that nothing worked out between the two parties.
Fightful Select’s Sean Ross Sapp revealed on his official Twitter handle that besides Cardi B and Mike Tyson, WWE had plans to land in Megan Thee Stallion in a spot with Smackdown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair. But as per the latest reports, the deal has gone into the bin.
WWE Summerslam: No Cardi B, Mike Tyson, or Megan Thee Stallion
As per Sean Ross Sapp, WWE already announced last weekend that Megan Thee Stallion won’t make it to Summerslam. However, the reason is yet to be known. For the mainstream fans, not having any celebrity on the show might not go well, but the ardent pro-wrestling fans should not bother with the same.
