Eminem to work with WWE

According to Fightful, legendary rapper Eminem has agreed to provide a soundtrack for WWE 2K20 and will appear on an episode of SmackDown Live when the shows moves to FOX later this year.

Pro Wrestling Sheet got a comment from Eminem’s representatives, though: “There was a very brief, exploratory conversation that involved a third party and 2K Sports, not Eminem’s team. It has not gone beyond preliminary discussions, and any reports to the contrary are false. Right now there are no plans to further pursue it.”

The Irishman lost the Intercontinental title on Monday night just weeks after winning it from Bobby Lashley.

Wrestlevotes notes that there is a reason for Balor’s loss and that because the company has plans for him at WrestleMania away from his programme with Lashley.

Why Kurt Angle is retiring

The legendary Kurt Angle announced on Raw that he will retire after one final match at WrestleMania 35.

While his opponent is unknown as of yet – although speculation says it could be John Cena – Angle addressed why he must retire: “It was really tough for me to come to that decision. It actually has been nipping at me for the past year. I’m 50 years old. I know I’m not the same as I used to be. I’m slower in the ring, I can still get the job done, but if I can’t perform at the Kurt Angle of 2006, I don’t want to perform at all. You finally know when you’re time’s come and you got to make a decision and I’ve decided I that want to keep my legacy intact and I think that retiring is the best decision for me.”
