WrestleMania has always been synonymous with celebrities and the 39th edition will be no different.
From Muhammed Ali, Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Mr. T to Kid Rock, Ozzy Osbourne, and Cyndi Lauper – they’ve all appeared at WrestleMania.
WWE is bound to whip out some celebs for its WrestleMania Goes Hollywood shows on April 1 and 2. We take a look at the likely candidates for celebrities at WrestleMania 39.
Celebrities At WrestleMania 39
If Snoop doesn’t appear at WrestleMania 39, WWE is taking the P-izzle. He’s on the poster for crying out loud. All ‘signs’ point to Snoop ‘sipping on gin and juice’ among ‘California Gurls’ at some point during WrestleMania weekend.
In what capacity? It’s anyone’s guess but he certainly won’t be rapping whilst his cousin enters the ring like in he did at WrestleMania 32.

There’s no might about this one. Becky G has been announced for the event by WWE. She will follow in the footsteps of Aretha Franklin, John Legend, Boys II Men, Ray Charles, and even Lillian Garcia by singing “America The Beautiful” to open WrestleMania.
Good for Becky G! 👏👏👏 She will be performing America The Beautiful at night 1 of WWE Wrestlemania 39. pic.twitter.com/JxEEvNu8xp

Logan Paul fills the now-traditional celebrity wrestler role by facing Seth Rollins, this year. It has been an amazing 12 months for Paul since he debuted at WrestleMania 38 against The Mysterios.
He defeated The Miz at SummerSlam, challenged Roman Reigns for the top gold at Crown Jewel, and had a great showing in the Royal Rumble. He is signed to a WWE deal so has transcended the celebrity performer status.
Anyway, his brother Jake will probably show up in his WrestleMania 39 entourage.

Talking of YouTubers, Lele Pons claimed WWE has offered her $20M to appear for them. WWE 100 percent didn’t. She 100 percent won’t be at WrestleMania but it seemed worth mentioning.
Big Dave has got an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame he can cash in whenever he likes. Hollywood seems a good place to do it. It’s also a great place for the Hollywood A-list movie star to make a cameo return to the WWE.
The Miz is hosting WrestleMania under the guise of being a movie star. Bautista putting Miz in his place and taking over hosting duties would be fantastic.
The Weeknd’s “Less Than Zero” is the official theme song of WrestleMania 39. It’s the fourth consecutive year the Candian singer has provided the WrestleMania theme tune.
He lives in LA. His latest album was recorded live at SoFi Stadium. Surely we are due a Weeknd WrestleMania performance?
Limp Bizkit defied the end of the Attitude Era with their performances at WrestleMania. It’s time for The Weeknd to do the same.
For the uneducated Andy Kaufman was a professional antagonist and prankster. He worked all of America into thinking he was genuinely wrestling random women on TV and in his live shows. This resulted in a worked feud with Jerry Lawler that the public believed to be real.
He would put his audience through excruciating bad performances on purpose. Faked old women having heart attacks and through tantrums under his Tony Clifton persona on TV. He claimed he’d like to fake his death so much that when he did die nobody believed it to be true.
For the record, we are not saying his death is a work that will play out with a live Andy Kaufman collecting his WWE Hall of Fame class of 2023 induction in person. But if it does happen. I told you so…
At this point, it’ll be weird if he isn’t there.
