Celebrities At ‘Mania 23, Backstage Fire Breaks Out

Ryan Clark


According to an article in The Detroit News today, there was a backstage scare during Kane’s entrance as his pyro created a fire behind the entrance ramp. The fire was extinguished eventually (while Kane & Khali’s match was going on), but it was said to be a major frenzy backstage after this happened considering some of the pyro that would later go on, most notably the big pyro display they had planned for Undertaker.

In the same article, there was a small list of celebrities that were seated around ringside which were Bill Ford Jr. (Ford Motor Co. Executive Chairman), Chris Webber (Detroit Pistons), Curtis Granderson (Detroit Tigers), Brandon Inge (Detroit Tigers), Joel Zumaya (Detroit Tigers [& was wearing ear plugs apparently]), Pudge Rodriguez (Detroit Tigers), Rev. Run (Run DMC), Thomas Hearns (Boxer), Katie Blair (Miss Teen USA), Rachel Smith (Miss USA), and Zuleyka Rivera (Miss Universe).
