The rep provided the following statement to Pro Wrestling Sheet:
“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.”
So, don’t get your hopes up on seeing the recording-artist on SmackDown Live or any WWE programming in the near future. Some of you may recall, there were rumors about Eminem and WWE in 2008 but those rumors turned out to be unfounded.
