WWE: Living Colour to Play CM Punk to the Ring at WrestleMania

Christopher OlmsteadSenior Analyst IIIApril 4, 2013


WrestleMania has become known for over-the-top entrances.

This year's star-studded event should be no different. Many members of the WWE universe are expecting to see many special entrances and ring attires. Well, CM Punk is doing his part to not disappoint in this category.

Time to let the cat out of the bag!@livingcolour will be playing me to and from the ring Sunday at #Wrestlemaina. #cultofpersonality

Having Living Colour play him to the ring is an awesome move by Punk and WWE. Punk has one of the best theme songs in the business, and watching it be performed live at WrestleMania XXIX should be quite the treat.

This isn't the first time that a band has played a WWE superstar to the ring at WrestleMania. Below is a compilation of musical acts that have played wrestlers' entrance themes on the grandest stage of them all.

  • The DX Band (performed DX's theme at WrestleMania XIV)
  • Drowning Pool (performed Triple H's theme at WrestleMania X8)
  • Limp Bizkit (performed Undertaker's theme at WrestleMania XIX)
  • Motorhead (performed Triple H's theme at WrestleMania X-seven and 21)
  • P.O.D (performed Rey Mysterio's theme at WrestleMania 22)
  • Ice-T (performed Godfather's theme at WrestleMania 2000)
  • Saliva (performed Dudley Boyz's theme at WrestleMania X8)

Living Colour will join quite the list of bands when it performs live this Sunday.

Which live WrestleMania performance above is your favorite? How do you think this Sunday's performance is going to stack up against the others?

WrestleMania XXIX is only days away!
