SummerSlam would be the second live event this year after WrestleMania 37. WWE has already chosen Cardi B’s record-breaking song “Up” as the theme for the PPV. Now, multiple reports are stating that Cardi might come down to perform the song live at the “hottest event of Summer.”

Cardi B has a history with WWE

Like many kids in America, Cardi also grew up watching WWE back in the early 2000s. Her association with WWE was revealed after a RAW episode regarding her aired.

Angel Garza namedropped Cardi, leading fans to tag Cardi in their tweets. Cardi was really confused and even asked the fans, “Ok no more WWE tweets I haven’t watched it in years. I was just confused on all the WWE tweets I was getting. Before this last thing I Hurd bout it was about a sexy wrestler name Carmella.”

Then, she revealed she didn’t watch The Rock because she was too young at the time. But she started watching the show after he left i.e. from the Ruthless-Aggression era.

“Naaaaa I was still too young when he (The Rock) was on. I started watching when Booka T, Eddie Gurrero, Triple H, Batista, John Cena, Edge, Melina, Trish Stratus, Lina ETC was on!” Cardi wrote.
