WWE President Nick Khan has previously spoken of his desire to bring in contemporary artists like Bad Bunny and Cardi B to WWE in order to entice a younger audience to watch their product.
Bad Bunny arrived, blew everyone’s mind at Wrestlemania and has since left with fans calling him arguably the greatest celebrity performer on the show.
Unlike Bad Bunny, who performed as a wrestler, Cardi B will be on the show as a host. Which means it is unlikely that she will wrestle. However, there may be an uxpected twist waiting for the fans. At this point, we can only wait and watch.
Cardi B was name dropped on an episode of RAW earlier this year. Fans later interacted with her and asked her about her opinions on some current wrestlers. After finding out what the segment she was namedropped in was about, the rapper jokingly warned Vince McMahon that she was coming after him.
