AC/DC to Piledrive Wrestlemania
Nonetheless, World Wrestling Entertainment's Wrestlemania XXV is hitting Reliant Stadium April 25, and AC/DC will be the musical guest. WWE CEO Linda McMahon announced at a press conference last week that the classic rockers would be performing the theme song to the event. (No word yet on what song they will be performing or if they will be putting on a mini-concert before or after the matches.) It seems plausible that would at least trot out some of new album Black Ice to a fresh audience; AC/DC sold out Toyota Center a little more than a month ago.
A few weeks before the main event off Fannin, WWE bought out its rival World Championship Wrestling, adding to the spectacle. The Rock lost the WWE heavyweight title that night to Stone Cold, after Stone Cold turned into a heel (bad guy) and hit the Rock in the head with a big metal chair.
