- WWE issued the following press release today:

WWE® (NYSE: WWE) today announced hip-hop stars Flo Rida and Machine Gun Kelly will perform at WrestleMania XXVIII live on pay-per-view Sunday, April 1 at 7 PM ET, emanating from Sun Life Stadium in Miami. More than 70,000 fans are expected to be in attendance with millions watching worldwide.

Miami native and Grammy Award-nominated, international superstar Flo Rida will perform two of his chart-topping tracks, "Good Feeling" and "Wild Ones." Bad Boy Records' newest recruit, Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), will deliver a show-stopping performance of his hit single "Invincible." Both artists' performances will set the stage for WrestleMania XXVIII's highly-anticipated main event match between Dwayne "The Rock®" Johnson and WWE Superstar John Cena®. Flo Rida and MGK join a renowned list of legendary performers that includes Kid Rock, Cee Lo Green, Mary J. Blige, Nickelback, Run-D.M.C., Pitbull, Diddy-Dirty Money and Trace Adkins who have performed at major WWE events.

Flo Rida's "Good Feeling" has become a top-10 hit in 16 countries, reaching Number 1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart in the United States, and "Wild Ones" has topped music charts in four countries. Both singles are official WrestleMania theme songs and are available digitally.

"Invincible" has been downloaded more than 100,000 times since being released on iTunes, helping MGK earn the title of "Hottest Breakthrough MC of 2011" by MTV. While at Monday Night Raw in his hometown of Cleveland, he was personally invited to perform at WrestleMania by Cena. His debut album, Lace Up, is slated for a summer 2012 release.

    I would rather see more wrestling instead of a concert :/ but the card still looks good. Just a shame that time that could have gone to the wrestlers is going to this.

  • Matt Scott

    Bloody two songs!? For Gods sake.

  • Aj

    Why have singers there? Isn’t this ment to be a wrestling show it’s bad enough that they change their theme music when they come out but now we have to watch them actually perform it!!

  • Razmos01

    If all above dont like it, DONT WATCH IT!!! You moaning about it is not going to change anything, so get over it!!

    • XKonn247

      Calm down captain decaf. You acting like emperor of the universe won’t stop us hating it either.

      • Razmos01

        Yeah thats right because i was acting like captain of the universe wasnt i? You hating it isnt changing it so why go on record moaning about it, they are performing entrance music tell you what WWE skip the rock and cenas entrance just have them appear out of nowhere in the ring and chuck in a match where these performances are, that way these clowns will be happy 🙂

      Yea that would make sense if its raw. Not a PPV you're spending almost 60 dollars on

      • Razmos01

        But you will all still buy it regardless!

  • Geezer

    I'm all for it.. adds to the spectacle… still have great memories of Limp Bizkit, Drowning Pool, Ice T at Wrestlemania..

  • thatguy

    I'm going to be a wrestlemania and i DO NOT want to see this. It's a waste of time a could cause a possible match to be bumped as it was last year. These performances might sound good to vince to have a "big name" perform. The only problem with that is no one is going to pay that kind of money to watch them perform 2 songs at an event they couldn't careless for.

    i love wwe's idea of entertainment.

    Flo Rida stole the chorus from Aviici – Levels

    I think many of you are missing the bigger picture. Do you realize how much publicity and media attention having machine gun Kelly and flo rida perform will bring to the WWE and Wrestlemania? Not only that, but it gives WWE a chance to promote their product to
    people who may just buy Wrestlemania because they’re fans of these artists. I would like to see more wrestling too, but I fully understand the WWE’s reasoning for having them perform.
