• Old School WrestleMania Celebrity Passes Away

Old School WWF WrestleMania Celebrity “The Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin passed away earlier today at the age of 76.

At WrestleMania III on March 29, 1987, she sang “America the Beautiful” in front of a LIVE audience of 93,173 people in the Pontiac Silverdome and millions watching at home.

20 years later, Vince brought her back to do it one more time at WrestleMania 23, where she ended up singing the song in front of 80,103 people at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.

Aretha Franklin passed away today, after she battled pancreatic cancer for quite a while.

After Nikolai Volkoff & Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, she’s now the 3rd Star from the WrestleMania III card who passed away within the past 3 weeks.

REST IN PEACE ARETHA FRANKLIN!
