It’s not quite the Cardi B partnership they reportedly hoped for, and it’s not happening on the main PPV from Las Vegas on Sat., Aug. 21. But WWE has landed a big star for a SummerSlam hosting gig.

Entertainment Tonight was the first to break the news that comedian and movie star Tiffany Haddish will work “SummerSlam After Party” event which will raise money for foster children.

WWE followed up with the press release:

Tiffany Haddish will host SummerSlam After Party in Las Vegas

As first announced by Entertainment Tonight, WWE has confirmed that comedian, actress and She Ready Foundation Founder Tiffany Haddish will host the official WWE SummerSlam After Party on Saturday, Aug. 21, in Las Vegas. The exclusive, invite-only event is presented by Pure Life Purified Water and will feature WWE Superstars, celebrity guests and influential business partners.

In support of Haddish and her monumental efforts, WWE will be making a financial contribution to the She Ready Foundation to help build a better life for children living under the foster care system.

“I’m really glad that me hanging out at the SummerSlam After Party with WWE Superstars is helping out foster kids. I’ve never hung out with WWE Superstars before, but I’ve definitely helped a lot of foster kids,” said Haddish.

“WWE’s mission is to put smiles on people’s faces and one person who does just that is the official host of the SummerSlam After Party, Tiffany Haddish. We are proud to support Tiffany and the She Ready Foundation during our biggest event of this year, SummerSlam, live from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer.

Founded in 2019, The She Ready Foundation is a 501c3 verified non-profit whose mission is to protect, provide resources, and ensure normalcy for foster children through sponsorship, suitcases, mentoring, and counseling. The She Ready Foundation serves as the voice of foster children suffering in silence. Adapting the belief of Haddish, a former foster youth, that, “Every child who is removed from their parents deserves to have a suitcase, a safe place to lay their head, and a platform to follow their dreams,” the She Ready Foundation aspires to help make this happen through collaborative partnerships. The foundation currently hosts an entertainment industry-based internship program in Los Angeles, donates suitcases to foster kids through a partnership with Travelpro and more.

SummerSlam will take place from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 21, marking the first time the annual event has been held at an NFL stadium. The event will stream live at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT exclusively on Peacock in the United States and on WWE Network everywhere else.

Doesn’t sound like this will be something you can watch, but we’ll surely get a lot of clips via social media.

Sound like a good addition to the Biggest Party of the Summer?
