The March 30 pay-per-view event at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando will also feature boxer Floyd Mayweather in a match with 7-foot, 399 pounds wrestler Big Show.

Legend will kick off the event by singing “America the Beautiful.” Snoop Dogg will serve as celebrity ring announcer for a “BunnyMania” match featuring female wrestlers who have appeared in Playboy.

Raven-Symone, who stars in the upcoming comedy “College Road Trip,” will host a wish-granting event as well as a “Bacon, Bagels and Biceps” brunch during WrestleMania weekend.
