While Elias may have declared himself the “headlining musical act” at April’s WrestleMania 35, an announcement made by WWE public relations on Tuesday morning makes him an opening act at best.
Per the announcement made on Twitter, rock icon Joan Jett will be in at MetLife Stadium to play Ronda Rousey to the ring for her history making Raw Women’s Championship main event match with a live performance of ‘Bad Reputation,’ a song that is linked to Rousey (and the opening credits of Freaks and Geeks) for an entire generation.
Here’s the announcement:
Back in the day, CM Punk (of all people) interviewed Jett for AXS TV and asked her what she thought about Rousey using her music as her fight entrance theme.
“I’m really amazed when people utilize our music to represent them in something that they do, so I thought it was so great that she walks out to ‘Bad Reputation.'”
Now all we need to do to complete the main event is to bring in The Killers to play Becky Lynch to the ring with a live performance of ‘The Man’, and to have The Nature Boy Orchestra show up for an arrangement of that ‘Also sprach Zarathustra’ dance remix.
