Top 20 Memorable Celebrity Appearances at WrestleMania

WrestleMania is the biggest show of the year for World Wrestling Entertainment. The company does more promotio for their superstars for this show than any other. They also pull out all the stops, not only with their superstars, but with people from outside the wrestling industry for the event. Since the first WrestleMania in 1985, the company has brought in celebrities to enhance the event even more. Some of the celebrities have truly helped make the event even more special, and some were an odd fit for anything to do with WWE.

The first two WrestleMania’s saw an influx of outside stars try to get some exposure at the event. WrestleMania II, spread among three different cities, saw more than 20 different celebrities be involved with the event in some form or fashion.

Finally, the following year, Vince McMahon realized that having that many outside celebrities was a bad idea and instead decided to build the event around the true money makers of the company – the wrestlers.

Sure you would still see a star or two here and there, but for the most part, having more than two or three celebs at a WrestleMania is about the limit.

From getting in the ring to wrestle or signing the National Anthem, celebrities have lined up for the biggest event of the year in the wrestling word, and today we take a look back, counting down the ‘20 Most Memorable Celebrity Appearances at WrestleMania .”

This WWE Hall of Famer has the most memorable appearance at a Mania, making not just one appearance, but two very big ones. He was involved in two main events in the first two WrestleManias, and some say that if it were not for him, Mania might not have been as big as it is today. He and Roddy Piper had a classic feud for two years, and a lot of it was built off a real life feud, as Piper was not a fan of bringing an ‘outsider’ into the wrestling ring. The first Mania main event is what got the ball rolling and then fought Piper in a rather forgettable ‘boxing’ match the following year. Even with a rather lackluster match at WM 2, Mr.T tops the list of memorable celebrity appearance at WrestleMania.
