WWE Reaches A Deal With Eminem

The Rap God will be in your ears this fall -- especially if you're a WWE fan.

Fightful Select reported this afternoon that WWE and recording artist-actor and overall megastar Eminem have reached a deal that will see the platinum-selling rapper contribute to the soundtrack of WWE 2K20 later this year. 2K Sports has seen the likes of Jay-Z help curate their soundtracks on the basketball end of things, and WWE 2K17 featured a soundtrack curated by P. Diddy.

Beyond soundtrack work, we're told there's also an agreement for Eminem to appear on an episode of WWE Smackdown later this year. The deal, reached today, was put together in part to promote the launch of WWE Smackdown Live on the Fox Network. WWE is also planning on having a championship belt produced for Eminem.

Eminem has been a major part of pop culture for over two decades, but this will mark his first appearance in WWE. However, several of his foes have appeared for the company -- notably Insane Clown Posse, Machine Gun Kelly, and rock band Limp Bizkit. There was a rumor that Eminem had reached a WWE deal way back in 2008, but his publicist quickly denied it.

WWE2K usually does their own deals on the side, but hey, maybe he replaces FloRida for this year's WM

You'd think that they'd try to include a deal to do someone's entrance theme in something like this. It seems odd to me that they don't.

This part has to be a work. This sort of thing wouldn't happen twice.
