Wrestlemania XXVII: And We Are LIVE!

Live from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, it's time for Wrestlemania XXVII (or 27, for you non-Romans). Keri Hilson. . .and I'll be honest, I'm not young enough or cool enough to know who she is or anything about her other than the fact that she's from Atlanta (and I only learned that from her intro) did a decent job with America the Beautiful, and the show is underway.

The ramp from the stage to the ring looks tremendously long. . .if anyone has any run-ins planned, I hope they've been working on their cardio.


Rock promises us that this will be the most memorable Wrestlemania of all time. There's a WRESTLE MAINA sign in the crowd. . .nice.

Rock gets in another "Fruity Pebbles" dig at Cena, prompting a "Fruity Pebbles" chant from the crowd. Yeah, Cena's eating a Rock Bottom by the end of the night. Catchphrases abound, and The Rock asks the crowd if they can smell what he's cooking, to which they respond in the affirmative.

Now that the crowd is officially warmed up, we're on to the first match of the evening! And we're going to kick things off with. . .Edge and Alberto Del Rio? Dang. . .kicking things off with a World Heavyweight Title match? Impressive!
