Other than being a chart-topping rapper & rocker, feuding with Eminem, and using amazing pick-up lines on Megan Fox, Machine Gun Kelly is also a member of the WWE Universe. His songs were part of the soundtrack of John Cena & The Rock’s WrestleMania feud, and he’s made a few guest appearances on Raw.
This is the one most of us remember...
