This Sunday is a landmark for sports entertainment and professional wrestling, as WrestleMania 30 emanates from New Orleans. For every wrestling fan WrestleMania is our version of the SuperBowl. But it’s more than just a blow off of the year’s top storylines, and best matches…it’s a spectacle filled with fireworks, crazy lights, music and celebrities. This year’s Mania currently has no adverted guests, but expect to see a few stars appear. It’s almost tradition that at every WrestleMania, someone from TV, film or music will share some of their shine to enhance the WWE superstars. This tradition started at the very first WrestleMania with Muhammad Ali, Liberace, Billy Martin, Cyndi Lauper and Mr. T.
Many celebrity appearances at WrestleMania are forgettable. I mean who remembers when Clara Peller appeared just before the WrestleMania 2 battle royal to proclaim “Where’s the Beef?”. Or what about at WrestleMania 15 when Butterbean knocked out Bart Gunn in the Brawl For All…okay that was pretty memorable.
It will be interesting to see if the WWE tries to go after any blues/New Orleans musicians or if they keep it to current pop culture celebs who are trying desperately to cash in on their 15 minutes of fame. In the meantime, here is a very of the Top 20 appearances as chosen by WWE (a few years ago).
