Aretha returns to WrestleMania

Looking back 20 years ago, Aretha Franklin was one of the premiere divas in the music world. Now, two decades later, she’s become a legend.

The theme for WrestleMania 23 is “All Grown Up,” and as such, it’s only fitting that the 19-time Grammy Award winner who opened WrestleMania III with a stunning rendition of "America the Beautiful," will return to the Motor City to kick off this year’s edition of sports-entertainment’s biggest showcase.

“We are honored to have Miss Aretha Franklin perform "America the Beautiful" at WrestleMania 23, which is just days away,” said Neil Lawi, GM of WWE Music Group. “She will kick off the greatest night in sports-entertainment history with an exquisite rendition of the song, proving again, as she did at WrestleMania III, that she is the voice of American soul, gospel and R&B.

The “Queen of Soul” has been part of the WWE family for more than 20 years, and will once again be part of history as millions around the world tune into this spectacular event.”

Wow! Wonder how Vince pulled this one...or better yet how much money he put out.

I figured to post this here as well.


WrestleMania press conference


WWE will invade Trump Tower in New York City next Wednesday when Superstars from Raw, SmackDown and ECW converge on the billionaire’s building for the official WrestleMania 23 press conference.

Be sure to be logged on to WWE.com at noon to watch the press conference, featuring all the players involved in the Battle of the Billionaires Match – Donald Trump, Mr. McMahon, Stone Cold Steve Austin, ECW Champion Bobby Lashley and Intercontinental Champion Umaga. With just days remaining before the world is introduced to its newest bald billionaire, what will happen when all these egos are under the same roof?

Also scheduled to appear, WWE Champion John Cena and his WrestleMania opponent Shawn Michaels, as well as World Heavyweight Champion Batista, Playboy cover girl Ashley, Women’s Champion Melina and Mr. McMahon’s Executive Assistant, Jonathan Coachman.

If you are in the New York area next Wednesday, you are invited to attend this historic press conference. Be sure to get there early, as many WWE fans are expected to show.
