What's the story?

31 years ago, Alice Cooper was in the corner of Jake "The Snake" Roberts in an iconic WrestleMania moment. The rockstar has tonight confirmed that his band's guitarist, Nita Strauss, will perform the entrance theme of WWE's Rockstar Shinsuke Nakamura tonight during WrestleMania 34!

In case you didn't know...

Eagle-eyed Alice Cooper fans may have spotted Nita Strauss as part of the WWE Universe last night during NXT TakeOver where she was sat with Josh from Three 6 Mafia.

Strauss was captioned as Alice Cooper's guitarist, but she's also been part of seveal bands such as The Iron Maidens, Femme Fatale and LA Kiss.

Strauss has been playing alongside Alice Cooper since 2014 and was ranked #1 on the list of Guitar World's 10 Female Guitar Players You Should Know.

The heart of the matter

Alice Cooper took to Twitter today to reminisc about his own WrestleMania moment and add that his guitarist will be following in his footsteps tonight when she performs live at WrestleMania during Shinsuke Nakamura's entrance.

What's next?

Shinsuke Nakamura faces off against AJ Styles for the WWE Championship in what's probably the most highly anticipated match of the card - and probably of the decade for much of the WWE Universe.

With details emerging of a pretty spectacular entrance for Nakamura, the excitement is only building further for this dream match.


Author's take

Well, many had been hoping to see Lee England Jr on the violin again for Nakamura, but this should be really cool! I'm sure it'll be an incredibly special entrance, too, particularly with Nita Strauss on guitar.

I'm a huge Alice Cooper fan and Strauss is incredibly talented, so I personally can't wait for this one!
