Complete with tails!

Sunday night, World Wrestling Entertainment put in it's annual biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania. The 32nd wrestling event took place from Dallas Texas's AT&T Stadium and was announced to have an attendance of 101,763 (The real number probably won't be made public until the next WWE investment statement).

Sunday night, World Wrestling Entertainment put in it's annual biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania. The 32nd wrestling event took place from Dallas Texas's AT&T Stadium and was announced to have an attendance of 101,763 (The real number probably won't be made public until the next WWE investment statement).

One of the big moments from the night, however, was the team of The New Day, Xavier Woods, Big E, and Kofi Kingston making their grand entrance to take on the team of The League of Nations.

After the visual of a 20-foot tall box of cereal coming down on the entrance stage, the team appeared from behind the box decked out in the Saiyan armor from the popular anime Dragonball Z.

Decked out in the black and gold versions of the get-up from the series, announcer Michael Cole explained that Xavier Woods was dressed as Vegeta (Complete with tail!). The larger Big E also wore the armor similar to Nappa, One has to wonder if that made Kofi Kingston Radditz?

Woods, known to wrestling fans as a big time anime fan, first had the connection t the series when he first started with the company years ago when he adopted the "Over 9000" phrase taken from the show into his then ring gear. In a slight twist, back then Cole tried to explain what the phrase meant but never mentioned the show or the character it came from.

Adding to this moment was during the entrance the camera's cut to the crowd where some of the members of Team Four Star happened to be sitting. The group, most famously known for their hilarious youtube dub of the series called DBZ: Abridged, happen to get on camera where Curtis “Takahata101″ Arnott, Nick “Lanipator” Landis and other members of the team could be seen holding up a sign with the group's logo on it.
