WWE.com has announced that, in addition to the ten matches set for WrestleMania 29, three-time Grammy Award winner Sean “Diddy” Combs will perform, live, at “The Show of Shows” on April 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Diddy’s group, Diddy-Dirty Money, is the group responsible for one of this year’s official WrestleMania theme songs, “Coming Home”, which has also been used for WWE’s Tribute to the Troops. Unfortunately, Diddy-Dirty Money disbanded last year, so it is unlikely that Diddy will be performing “Coming Home” at WrestleMania in ten nights. Diddy also appeared at last year’s WrestleMania to introduce his former protege, Machine Gun Kelly (MGK), who performed “Invincible” in front of a sold-out crowd.
In addition to performing at WrestleMania, Diddy will co-host the Superstars for Sandy Relief party with WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon and will also serve as the ambassador for the Be a STAR anti-bullying campaign. Both events will be a part of WrestleMania Week in the New York/New Jersey area.
Diddy commented on performing at this year’s WrestleMania, saying “WrestleMania is one of the biggest spectacles in the world and I’m looking forward to performing in front of millions on April 7. I’ve always been a fan of WWE and I’m excited to support these two important causes, Superstars for Sandy Relief and the Be a STAR anti-bullying initiative.”
