Yeah it is a bit of a weird crowd but apparantly Vince McMahon is a huge fan and really wanted them to play and I'm willing to bet he offered them all the cash they wanted to do it. Plenty of other big names have been at Wrestlemania before though like Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Motorhead, Limp Bizkit, Aretha Franklin, Ice-T and plenty of others. AC/DC may well be the biggest name yet though.

I've always loved how the WWE has the house band that writes songs with riffs sounding similar to other bands.

haha faku you don't know anything about music, so stop posting here and go back to Fallout Boy. AC/DC is the greatest band to rock out and have a good time to, so all you emo razor blade cutting losers can go watch something else
