Alexa Bliss makes her entrance to attend to her hosting duties.
She welcomes us to the show and says we don’t just need a host on a night like this, we need a goddess. She has all of us and the entire show in the palm of her hand, which means if she wants a WrestleMania moment all she has to do is snap her fingers. Don’t believe her? She snaps her fingers and noted racist Hulk Hogan makes his entrance.
He says it’s great to be back at WrestleMania, right here in the Silverdome. Or, y’know, the MetLife Center, and he says he sees 80,000 screaming Hulkamaniacs and asks what we’re gonna do when we get run wild on and whatnot. He and Bliss flex together and do the ear cup deal, and Paul Heyman comes power walking through them.
He says if his client isn’t on last, he’s not hanging around all night to wait, and they’re getting their business done and heading to Las Vegas where his client is appreciated. So let’s get this nonsense over with, they’re doing it right here, right now!

Elias is in the ring to sing us a song.
Er, which is to say, he’s on the tron to play us the drums…? And then he’s at the piano.
NOW he’s in the ring to sing us a song.
He does his usual intro stuff and asks if we’ve ever seen a more handsome band in our lives, at which point we see that piano Elias and drums Elias are on the tron and he’s going to play with them. Elias plays with himself and then tells himselves to take a bow and says he’s gonna take it from here. He does more of his usual intro and plays a few bars of Seven Nation Army to get the chant going.
For his first song he wrote something especially for WrestleMania that will be the anthem for years to come, and he’s interrupted by a SPECIAL BULLETIN on the tron. It’s an old-timey baseball newsreel about Babe Ruth taking the plate and calling his shot.
WORD LIFE! THIS IS BASIC THUGANOMICS! JOHN CENA’S HERE AND HE’S WEARING THE CHAIN BABY!
He gets in the ring and gets on the mic, asking for the beat to be killed. He starts rapping about turning heel and mocking Elias’ spiel, telling him the whole damn thing sucks and questioning the idea that WWE stands for “walk with Elias”, suggesting instead it stands for “wasted wrestling experiment.” He calls him a little piece of Shih-Tzu and we get an edited photo to go with it.
