Rapper Wale sneaks into a WrestleMania-heavy batch of intriguing WWE social media items.
Most of the noteworthy tweets, Instagram photos and viral videos of the week celebrate WrestleMania 30's impending arrival. Looks at WrestleMania Axxess, the set in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the confirmation of a special guest highlight the latest WWE-related social media buzz.
An ugly incident between a fan and Wale also circulated the Internet.
The following video shows that the "fight" was not much more than two guys trading some shoving.
NSFW Warning: There is some brief profanity in both the screenshot of the tweet and the video itself.
Even if the action was nothing compared to Batista vs. Randy Orton, curiosity still led fans to check this clip out. It had nearly 400,000 views in just a matter of days.
Those who attended WrestleMania Axxess had much more positive things to check out. The fan festival was a great chance for fans to meet their favorite Superstars.
Kudos to this Ryback fan for finding an "Eat, Tweet, Delete, Repeat" T-shirt.

One of the annual attractions at Axxess is a graveyard dedicated to the Superstars Undertaker has defeated at WrestleMania. This year, it not only added CM Punk, but honored the late Paul Bearer.

Bruno Sammartino received an honor of his own. WWE crafted a life-sized statue of the man who held the WWE Championship longer than anyone in history.
Andre the Giant was immortalized this way last year. It was Sammartino's turn this time around.
Twitter revealed glimpses of what the Wrestlemania set inside the Superdome will look like. In this shot, courtesy of The Nick and Bryan Show, one can see the massive logo begin to take shape.

Ringside Xcess then shared a view of the more completed set, with Kane's famous flames and all.

Grand entrances, with pyrotechnics, smoke and elaborate props, have been a WrestleMania tradition for years. One can expect John Cena and Undertaker to have something special planned for the event. They always seem to.
WWE celebrated some of the most memorable WrestleMania entrances in the latest countdown video.
Cena, Shawn Michaels and Randy Savage are featured in the top 10. A number of the best entrances, though, got snubbed.
Rey Mysterio at WrestleMania 22, Undertaker at WrestleMania XX or even Rhythm and Blues from WrestleMania VI should have made the list.
To be fair, though, one could fill the majority of this list with Undertaker. His eerie, fog-filled entrances have been magnificent on several occasions. There is just something enthralling about his look and character that make his slow walk to the ring a haunting experience.
That is apparently even true for him before he even breaks through the curtain.
WWE posted a photo of him backstage at Monday's Raw. It captures his aura perfectly.
How "The Deadman" enters for his match with Brock Lesnar should be one of WrestleMania 30's most anticipated moments. There is nothing that can excite a WWE fan like hearing the sound of glass breaking, though.
Steve Austin is set to provide that experience once more. WWE confirmed that he will be a part of "The Show of Shows."
It doesn't really matter what role he will have. Just hearing that bit of news makes WrestleMania bigger and more nostalgia-inducing.
When he stomps on down to the ring and chugs beers in the corner, expect Twitter and Instagram to be filled with images of Austin.
