WWE is now using Cardi B’s “Up” as the official SummerSlam 2021 theme song while it appears that the partnership between those two parties will be extended. WWE fans were treated to a hype video for the upcoming PPV during Friday Night SmackDown which appeared to the infamous Cardi B track “Up.”

As the company revealed the official SummerSlam 2021 theme song, it wasn’t a huge surprise as Stephanie McMahon previously name-dropped her in a recent interview. Among other mainstream celebs, the company was always interested to bring her into a significant role, down the road.

Wrestle Votes tweeted out after the official theme song revelation that Cardi B’s involvement with SummerSlam 2021 will go deeper than just using her song in hype videos. Andrew Zarian of Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast then broke the news that WWE plans to use the Rapper as the host of SummerSlam 2021,

“I can confirm that I was told cardi b is the host for SummerSlam this year.”

We can only hope that Cardi B’s involvement with the Biggest Event of the Summer will be a unique one, unlike the usual hosting where the hosts come out once or twice on the stage to address the audience. While the mainstream celebrity is guaranteed to receive a huge payday, it’s unlikely that she will get physical in the ring.
