WrestleMania is almost upon us, with just over 24 hours until all hell breaks lose in the New Orleans Superdome.

Unpredictability is the name of the game at the annual extravaganza, and with big name match ups, returning stars, and unbreakable streaks the 30th incarnation of Vince McMahon's famed event is sure to be one for the ages.

But something that has been synonymous with the event down the years has been the celebrity appearances from some of the biggest names around the globe.

Everyone has their own personal favorite A-list appearance but what about the wrestlers themselves?

Two of the WWE"s biggest names, Hulk Hogan and John Cena, today named their own picks in an interview with Sports Illustrated:

"I loved Mike Tyson," said Cena.

"Just because of what he brought to WrestleMania.

"It's moments like that where maybe you feel the momentum of WrestleMania dwindling a little bit, but then here comes the baddest man on the planet to make it so enormous, that WrestleMania became bigger than it ever was before, and because of that, Tyson is my favorite."

Tyson acted as a ring enforcer for the main event of WrestleMania XIV, crowning Steve Austin World Champion for the first time as the Attitude Era began in earnest.

As for Hogan you just knew it was going to involved Hulkamania somehow, with the recently returned wrestler going right back to the beginning for his pick:

"My favorite celebrity moment is when I was standing in the ring at WrestleMania and I looked across the ring to see Muhammad Ali as the referee. 

"That said a lot to me about what WrestleMania was all about and how we were on to something special."

The boxer was the special guest referee for a WrestleMania I main event which included everyone from Hogan and Roddy Piper to Mr. T.

Everyone from Burt Reynolds to Joan Rivers has been involved at WrestleMania so we are sure you all have your own personal favorites.
