Here's video of the WrestleMania 33 stage catching fire during Undertaker's exit

Considering how elaborate the set for WrestleMania 33 in Orlando’s Camping World Stadium was, it’s remarkable there was only one major incident during the night of April 2, 2017 (that we know of anyone). But here’s a picture and a video clip folks in attendance shared of a fire that caught on stage during Undertaker’s exit after the last match of the night:

You can see one of the reported 400 - 500 production personnel rush on stage with a fire extinguisher to control the blaze in the below video. It’s a testament to these pros that the fire was put out quickly and not only did no one get hurt, but it didn’t attract much attention as it happened:

This isn’t the first time something’s gone awry during Taker’s pyro. Back in 2010 at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view (PPV), the Phenom himself briefly caught fire during his entrance. So, another point in the ‘Mania team’s favor that it doesn’t appear anyone was hurt.

I guess not even the universe could let the Phenom leave without making a gesture.
