Over the past two weeks, WWE has had John Cena and The Rock reveal that they will be played into their match at WrestleMania 28 on April 1 in Miami by recording artists Machine Gun Kelly and Flo Rida, respectively.
Now, via press release, the company has made it official:
WWE® (NYSE: WWE) today announced hip-hop stars Flo Rida and Machine Gun Kelly will perform at WrestleMania XXVIII live on pay-per-view Sunday, April 1 at 7 PM ET, emanating from Sun Life Stadium in Miami. More than 70,000 fans are expected to be in attendance with millions watching worldwide.
Miami native and Grammy Award-nominated, international superstar Flo Rida will perform two of his chart-topping tracks, "Good Feeling" and "Wild Ones." Bad Boy Records' newest recruit, Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), will deliver a show-stopping performance of his hit single "Invincible." Both artists' performances will set the stage for WrestleMania XXVIII's highly-anticipated main event match between Dwayne "The Rock®" Johnson and WWE Superstar John Cena®. Flo Rida and MGK join a renowned list of legendary performers that includes Kid Rock, Cee Lo Green, Mary J. Blige, Nickelback, Run-D.M.C., Pitbull, Diddy-Dirty Money and Trace Adkins who have performed at major WWE events.
Although I think we're all probably a little burned out on hearing these songs thanks to WWE's excessive use during its various promos for The Rock vs. John Cena, it should add a nice little touch to the broadcast. Fans down in Miami at Sun Life Stadium will also get the benefit of seeing not just a wrestling show but a concert, as well.
If you're going to go, better to go all out.
