Breaking News: Floyd Mayweather Jr. To Wrestle At WrestleMania

As you may have assumed, boxing champion Floyd Mayweather’s appearance at last night’s No Way Out PPV was not an isolated incident. Mayweather is scheduled to be the big celebrity at this year’s WrestleMania — and he’ll do more than be a referee or special enforcer.

Mayweather is scheduled to wrestle on the show, most likely in a tag team match. He is expected to team with Rey Mysterio (assuming Rey is healthy enough to wrestle) in a match against Big Show and a tag partner. The status of Mysterio’s injury will determine who will wrestle in the Mayweather match.

According to reports, Vince McMahon and the creative team are said to be considering a number of different match possibilities. A source noted that plans are "constantly changing". MVP’s name has been mentioned as a possible candidate to team with Big Show. One would also have to assume that Shane McMahon is a strong candidate since he was there at ringside last night to calm down the Big Show after his nose got broken from a Mayweather punch.
