WWE has loaded up the card for SummerSlam and tried to get various celebrities to appear at the show.
Dating back to the spring, it was reported that WWE wanted Cardi B to host or be involved with the event to the point where they were going to use one of her songs as a theme music for it. She became pregnant and that put an end to the plans.
It was reported today that Mike Tyson was contacted to do the voiceover work for the Summerslam opening video package, but the deal could not be reached.
Fightful Select reported today that musician Megan Thee Stallion was also planned for a spot involving Bianca Belair for the show, but while WWE had thought at one point a deal was done, they were told last weekend it would not be happening. A reason for this wasn’t given.
WWE holds the SummerSlam pay-per-view event on Saturday, August 21 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada at Allegiant Stadium which will air on Peacock. WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. John Cena will headline the show.
