WrestleMania attracts Snoop Dogg

LOS ANGELES - Musicians Snoop Dogg and John Legend, and actress Raven-Symone will be involved in World Wrestling Entertainment's annual WrestleMania XXIV extravaganza later this month as it continues to attract celebrities in guest roles.

The March 30 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.
