It has been confirmed that Nu-Metal recording artist Poppy, will be performing on night two of NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.
Not only that, the “Bloodmoney” singer will also be debuting a new song at the showpiece event.
Poppy has previously appeared in NXT in 2019, and more recently at the Halloween Havoc special in 2020.
Speaking to Billboard, WWE Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development, Triple H explained that music has always been a big part of WWE before adding:
“Music adds so much to the emotion of what it is we do and that connection has been there since the very beginning when you had the rock and wrestling connection with Cyndi Lauper as part of the WWE.”
Triple H, real name Paul Levesque, expanded further, detailing how WWE’s relationship with the music industry has evolved over time.
“They were sort of just transactional at first. Like, ‘We want to use your song, pay us this much to use the song,’ and that was the end of it. But now bands are super collaborative because they need the platform and we want to work with them. Now it’s like, ‘Hey, how can we work together to make this big for you and to make it big for us?’ We have over a billion social media followers globally so the size and scope of WWE on every level can help these artists tremendously. When we work all together, it’s magic.”
WrestleMania 37 will also see Grammy winning artist Bad Bunny, make his in-ring debut alongside Damian Priest, when they take on The Miz and John Morrison.
Speaking on Bad Bunny’s impending debut, Triple H praised the rapper for his commitment to his new role, while also revealing that Poppy also wants to get inside the ring.
“Bunny finds himself at a place in his career where he can just say I want to be in the WWE and that’s amazing to me,” Levesque adds. “He got a place in Orlando and he’s been training three times a week for the past three months. He has taken it so seriously. I love those collaborations. And Poppy is like Bunny in the way that every time I see her, she wants to get in the ring and wrestle and start training.”
