Celebs at WrestleMania, Vince and Linda McMahon Speak

– People Magazine is reporting that rocker Kid Rock will do a medley of songs as part of 25 while Pussycat Doll singer Nicole Scherzinger will open the show singing “America the Beautiful.”

– Variety featured comments from Vince and today about the rise of WrestleMania as a cultural event for the wrestling industry. They told a story that it dawned on them during a vacation once that the business had no major national event, then WrestleMania was born.

“WrestleMania put us on the map as a brand that we didn’t have before,” Linda said. “It did business we didn’t expect to do. It became the first major national event for our business and is now a globally recognized brand shown live in 23 countries. When you launch something, you just don’t know how it will turn out. It was everything we hoped it would be and then some.”

The Variety article also noted that WWE has toned down their product in recent months, but didn’t mention the connection to Linda’s appointment on the Connecticut Board of Education. They mentioned that the change provided them with a chance to cross their performers and characters over into other forms of entertainment.

It was noted that the company would like to put on more live events but, “We’re not Disney. Our characters live and breathe. You can expect them to only do so many live events,” said Vince.
