Eminem's Camp Denies Recent Report Of WWE Involvement

Report: Eminem Strikes WWE 2K20 Deal, Will Appear On SmackDown (Update)

Eminem Denies Signing Deal With WWE & Smackdown Live

Fightful is reporting that Slim Shady has reached a deal to oversee the soundtrack to WWE 2K20, the next instalment in the annual WWE video game series.

So, don't get your hopes up on seeing the recording-artist on SmackDown Live or any WWE programming in the near future. They are also reportedly "planning" on creating a customized championship belt for Eminem.

Beasley has started in 22 games, and has played the majority of his career with the Cowboys as a slot receiver. Last season in Dallas , Beasley caught 65 passes for 672 yards, and found the endzone three times in the air.

Rumours of a Slim Shady appearance in WWE did the rounds all the way back in 2008, but nothing ever came of it. This fall, SmackDown will move to the FOX Network as part of a mega deal, and Eminem is the type of mainstream star who can help both WWE and FOX feel like SmackDown is getting as much hype as possible.

While it appears as though both sides were speaking on a potential deal, Pro Wrestling Sheet now reports that the deal was never actually made. The comment from Eminem spokesperson Dennis Dennehy can be seen below. "It has not gone beyond preliminary discussions, and any reports to the contrary are false".
