Let's be honest. WrestleMania is the biggest show on earth, at least, in the wrestling world. It's not an overstatement to compare it to the football world cup or the NFL Superbowl.
When Vince McMahon launched his vision for wrestling 35 years ago, it personified with what came to be known as Sports Entertainment.
Celebrities, musicians, professional athletes and WWE Superstars performed in fronts of thousands of fans or the WWE Universe as it is known today. It would not be an overstatement to compare Vince McMahon to a modern-day P.T. Barnum.
His vision has come true in more ways than one with WWE becoming a wrestling empire that dominates the hearts and minds of millions of fans worldwide.
And the fusion of storytelling, in-ring action, and the audience make for an electric combination. And it all starts as soon as a WWE Superstar makes his way down that ramp.
With every WrestleMania comes another high-octane event. One of the more fun parts of Mania has been the entrances.
As a child, it was cool to watch Goldberg in WCW slowly walk to the ring alongside trainers and/or police officers and walk through fireworks and pyros.
And he snorted the smoke he inhaled, akin to a raging bull in a china shop. The Undertaker had his slow walk to the ring in darkness as he raised the lights, Ultimate Warrior ran to the ring and shook the ropes like a force of nature or even the understated Bret Hart entrance.
In essence, the WWE superstars entrances are an extension of their respective characters. Let's take a look at five memorable WWE entrances that thrilled audiences at WrestleMania.
#5 John Cena, WrestleMania 25, Army of Cenas
While John Cena is not my favorite WWE Superstar, he knows how to make an entrance. The entry of multiple Cena clones at WrestleMania 25 may resemble an old sci-fi film aimed at giving heart attacks to Cena haters everywhere but for the rest of the WWE Universe, it was just more of a good thing.
The atmosphere is electric and John Cena running through wall-to-wall duplicates of himself with the cameraman following him close behind, proving a POV to the audience in the arena as well as those watching at home adds to the overall idea of 'the champ is here.'
