Rapper Talks Performance At WrestleMania This Sunday, Being By John
Cena's Side & More
Hip-Hip star Machine Gun Kelly (MGK) is no longer wrestling to
establish his place in the entertainment industry. The Ohio-native
recording artist, signed to Bad Boy Records/Interscope by industry
moguls Sean "Diddy" Combs and Jimmy Iovine, quite literally finds
himself in the main event.
With his hit single "Invincible" the official song of WWE WrestleMania
28, MGK will accompany John Cena to the ring in Miami when he
challenges Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the marquee match of the
annual Pay-Per-View. MGK spoke about the performance in an exclusive
interview with WrestlingInc.com.
On accompanying John Cena to the ring this Sunday: I
think the dopest thing about the performance is he didn't want to do
any flashy sh-t or any pyro. We were told we could do whatever we
wanted. They laid out this big plan; we'd come out with f-cking fire
and all this crazy sh-t. Cena was like, "Lets make sure we keep it
about what we stand for, which is simplicity and representing for the
average Joe." I thought it was cool we're not going to do any of that.
We're just going to come out and do our thing.
How wrestling fans have responded to him: Well, they
know I'm riding with John Cena, so… that's really all that matters.
WWE brought me out in my home city, then me and The Rock had a
conversation. John Cena has got it this year. All I'm really focused
on is making sure my man takes home the win... I'm riding with Cena;
Cena's the greatest!
If WrestleMania is the largest audience he's performed in
front of: Yes. 75,000 people will be the biggest crowd I've
performed in front of.
MGK also revealed how he will deal with the boos from the Miami crowd
and future plans with WWE, you can check out the full interview at
