As the Super Bowl of professional wrestling, the musical entertainment is almost as big of a story at WrestleMania 29 as the athletes themselves.

This year, Diddy and Living Colour will supply the clef notes for the action.

Diddy's "Coming Home" is the feature song of the event, and it is almost a given he'll deliver it during his performance.

I'd be happy if he was up on stage with hologram Biggie Smalls and Busta Rhymes to perform "Victory," but I guess even Vince McMahon can't produce that.

Even without the aid of legendary hip hop artists, seeing Diddy affiliated with the WWE is mildly entertaining. I wonder if he'll send one of the WWE's midcarders to the Bronx for a cheesecake.

3MB, Justin Gabriel and Epico and Primo should probably steer clear of him. He just might mistake them for one of his assistants.

After all, none of the aforementioned WWE talent is scheduled to be in action Sunday night.

As for Living Colour, Corey Glover and the rest of the band have had a huge impact on rock music. It is possible they could even perform CM Punk's theme song, "Cult of Personality," live.

Glover is now 48 years old, so the usual energy fans are accustomed to may be a bit peeled back.

Expect to see them perform all or some medley of their other hits: "Time's Up," "Leave it Alone" and "Glamour Boys."

Hopefully the combination of Diddy and Living Colour can prevent this segment of the show from being my time to take a bathroom break.
