Wrestlemania always brings with it some unique and over-the-top entrances for wresters, but this may have been the first one inspired by Game of Thrones.
During Wrestlemania 34 on Sunday night, superstar Seth Rollins came to the ring with a Game of Thrones-inspired entrance that made him look like the Night King. The wrestler, dubbed the King Slayer, had one of the best entrances of the night.
Take a look:
The light show and pyrotechnics were a clear nod to the name of the novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire, and he even was wearing light blue contacts to make himself look like the Night King from Game of Thrones.
To really hammer it in, one of the announcers exclaimed that “Winter is here,” a nod the words of House Stark.
Rollins was wrestling against The Miz and Finn Bálor in a triple threat match for the Intercontinental Championship — a belt that Rollins has never held before. Rollins ended up taking the title after delivering a few of his signature Curb Stomps to his opponents.
That’s probably not how the Night King would settle a fight, but hey, you’re not allowed to kill people in the WWE, so it was probably as close as Rollins could get.
