Last weekend, over 75,000 WWE fans from around the world walked into the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA for the 30th anniversary of Wrestlemania, the Super Bowl of sports entertainment. Anyone who watches the WWE as religiously as I do would tell you that nothing makes a pay per view quite like the music that surrounds it.

Kid Rock had the honor of having “Celebrate” named as the main theme song for the Show of Shows, and seeing as Mania XXX was held in NOLA, “Celebrate” was definitely the perfect song to bring the event around full circle. There were many things to celebrate in New Orleans, the obvious being the “Miracle On Bourbon Street”. Daniel Bryan defied The Authority, a crooked ref, Randy Orton, AND Batista to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion in front of 75,000 members of the WWE Universe. Let the good times roll!

Next up, we have “Legacy” from Eminem. John Cena had one hell of an opponent in Bray Wyatt and “Legacy” was the perfect song from it. Wyatt and Cena both engulfed each other in a series of mind games and this feud would eventually culminate at the Granddaddy of Em All, Wrestlemania. Which legacy would prevail? John Cena’s almost 15 year career or The Wyatt’s “Follow The Buzzards” mentality?

The Undertaker’s tenure in the WWE surpasses nearly a quarter century. Since his debut in 1992, The Undertaker has been undefeated at Wrestlemania, defeating 21 consecutive opponents. Brock Lesnar is the newest competitor to try to conquer “The Streak” and WWE needed a theme song that would captivate the ominous mystery that is The Undertaker as well as “the beast incarnate” Brock Lesnar. And WWE settled on Mark Collie’s “In Time”. It would turn out that The Undertaker would suffer his first loss at Wrestlemania, and as one of the 75,000+ in attendance, everyone was silent. This song would serve its purpose, leaving the viewer wondering exactly what the hell they just witnessed.

Wrestlemania XXX was, without a shadow of a doubt, the greatest Wrestlemania in the history of the WWE. We saw tears shed, jaws dropped, and underdogs prevail. What music will Wrestlemania XXXI contain? We have a year to wait and see!
