Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy helped make WrestleMania 29 a memorable one last night (April 7) by performing at the packed MetLife Stadium in New Jersey as fans showed up to watch their favorite professional wrestlers rumble.
According to reports, Puff performed a few big hits including 1997’s “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” anthem.
Diddy performed live at WWE’s WrestleMania 29, wrestling’s equivalent to the Super Bowl, on Sunday April 7. The Bad Boy CEO did a medley that included “Mo Money Mo Problems,” “It’s All About the Benjamins” and “Coming Home,” the latter being the official theme song of the event, beneath a makeshift New York City skyline. Wrestlemania 29 went down at East Rutherford, NJ’s MetLife stadium. (VIBE)
Puffy even relied on Interscope Records’ Skylar Grey to help assist with his “Coming Home” track.
Sean “Diddy” Combs performed the event’s theme song, “Coming Home,” with the singer Skylar Grey. Reality TV’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi flashed a lipsticked, toothy smile, managing more fanfare than Gov. Chris Christie, who helicoptered in wearing a mustard fleece. Donald Trump, an inductee at last night’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, stepped on the stadium stage to a mixed reaction. (Star-Ledger)
Reports also claim Young Money boss Lil Wayne was in attendance amongst other high-profile entertainers.
In addition to this card many celebrities were named at the official press conference to appear at this year’s extravaganza, including performances by Diddy and Living Colour, with appearances by Charlie Sheen, Jimmy Fallon, Mike Tyson, Snooki, and Lil Wayne. I’m not sure this Wrestlemania will compare to past Manias, but one thing’s for sure, it will be entertaining. (Washington Times)
Despite the buzz, some wrestling fanatics described WrestleMania 29 as one of the worst in history.
Every classic WrestleMania has a defining moment. What was tonight’s? A clean John Cena victory? As Michael Cole let us know, tonight was the fourth time we’ve seen that at a WrestleMania. It’s nothing new. Hundreds of millions in dollars of revenue were brought to New York City and New Jersey tonight. Fans poured their money, time and energy into the WWE product. On the grandest stage of them all, WWE let their fans down. WrestleMania 29 will go down in history as one of the most disappointing ever. (Bleacher Report)
