John Cena boasts a history of memorable WrestleMania entrances, and this year will be no different. Breakout rap sensation Machine Gun Kelly – who goes by the initials “MGK” – will be in Miami April 1 to perform the Cenation leader’s entrance theme live at WrestleMania XXVIII.
MGK is the artist behind “Invincible,” Cena’s official theme for the Road to WrestleMania XXVIII, where he will face The Rock in a once-in-a-lifetime match.
Following the March 12 edition of Raw SuperShow, which took place in Cleveland, Cena invited MGK into the ring and asked him to rap Cena into battle against The Rock in Sun Life Stadium. MGK, who watched Raw from the front row, excitedly accepted.
“For those who don’t know, get real familiar, ‘cuz this is hip-hop right here,” Cena said of MGK, a Cleveland native, before the sold-out Quicken Loans Arena.
Early in the night, Cena returned to his roots as the “Doctor of Thuganomics” to deliver a stinging battle rap against The Rock. The Great One responded later on with his own “Rock Concert.”
In inviting MGK to Miami, Cena noted that he’s frequently asked about his plans for an extravagant entrance at WrestleMania XXVIII. The Cenation leader’s past WrestleMania entrances included crashing a car through glass and running down an aisle way lined by dozens of John Cena impersonators.
“I say we take Cleveland to WrestleMania,” Cena said about this year’s festivities.
After accepting Cena’s offer, MGK couldn’t help but to take a dig at former Cleveland Cavalier LeBron James, who famously left his native Ohio to play with the Miami Heat two seasons ago.
“I would also like to say that, unlike the other individual who used to play in this very stadium, I will not be moving my talents talents to South Beach,” MGK reassured his Cleveland faithful.
