One of the hallmarks of WrestleMania is over-the-top entrances and special live musical performances. Earlier this week, we found out who will be singing Rhea Ripley to the ring for her match against Asuka on night two (Apr. 11) of WrestleMania 37. It turns out that Big E is also receiving a special musical entrance for his Nigerian Drum Fight against Apollo Crews on that same night.
Here is WWE’s announcement about Wale performing at WrestleMania:
Grammy-nominated Nigerian-American rapper and producer Wale, who is featured on Intercontinental Champion Big E’s entrance theme song “Feel The Power,” will perform the entrance for The Powerhouse of Positivity at WrestleMania.
Although performing on The Grandest Stage of Them All is quite an honor, Wale is no stranger to WWE. He also performed The Street Profits out to the ring on NXT in 2019 and his song “My PYT” was an official theme song for SummerSlam in 2016. In addition, Wale hosted a rap battle between The Usos and The New Day on SmackDown in 2017 and his song “Ungrateful & Thankful” was created for WWE’s 2K19 video game soundtrack.
Wale even hosts an annual event called “WaleMania” around WrestleMania, which combines his love of sports-entertainment and hip-hop.
WWE also revealed that Ashland Craft will perform “America The Beautiful” on night two of WrestleMania:
Breakout country artist Ashland Craft will perform “America The Beautiful” on Night 2 of WrestleMania.
Recently featured in CMT’s “Next Women of Country Class of 2021” and a Top 10 Finalist on “The Voice,” Craft is a rising star in the music industry. She was featured on the song “So Close” by multi-platinum country artist and songwriter Hardy, who performed at WWE Tribute to the Troops in December.
Earlier this week, it was announced the recording artist Bebe Rexha would perform “America The Beautiful” on Saturday, April 10, for Night 1 of WrestleMania.
Does this news get you a little more hyped up for whatever a Nigerian Drum Fight happens to be?
