Cardi B fans perked up during SmackDown this week, because they heard a very familar song. The biggest party of the summer is going down on Saturday, August 21st, and Cardi B might be invited.

WWE fans were treated to a hype video for SummerSlam during Friday Night SmackDown. SummerSlam’s official theme song made its first appearance in that video.

The company is using Cardi B’s “Up” as the official SummerSlam theme song. This is not a huge surprise as WWE and Cardi B have been rumored to be friendly for some time. Stephanie McMahon even namedropped her in a recent interview when discussing celebs the company would like to bring in.

It’s unlikely that Cardi B will get physical in the ring. She is known to throw down when the situation calls for it, because Cardi isn’t going to walk away from a fight. Odds are she will still get a very nice payday from WWE for using her song during the build for SummerSlam.

The company has not revealed a location for SummerSlam yet. They have a multitude of NFL stadiums that they are currently considering. We do know that Cardi B is going to get a lot of airplay in the months to come as WWE hypes their big event.

What’s your take on SummerSlam’s theme song this year? Sound off in the comments!

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
