WrestleMania XIV celebrities
Tyson was the special ringside enforcer for the Stone Cold vs. Shawn Michaels WWE Championship main event. Tyson was considered the "baddest man on the planet" during his hey day as a professional boxer. Even after he lost some of his mystique, he was still the most feared man in the sport of boxing. Mr. McMahon recruited Iron Mike to help officiate the Stone Cold vs. Shawn Michaels main event. Tyson fooled everyone in pretending to be aligned with Michaels' D-Generation X heading into the event, but in the end, he revealed his allegiance to Stone Cold when he counted the 1-2-3 and raised the Rattlesnake's hand in victory.
Hagler, who had ringside seats for the event, is arguably the greatest Middleweight boxer of all time. He accumulated a record of 62-3-2 with 52 knockouts. Some of his greatest came against the likes of Roberto Duran and Thomas Hearns.
Rose was a guest ring announcer for the Kane vs. Undertaker match. Pete Rose is one of the greatest baseball players of all time, as he holds the all-time hits record, but he is probably best known for betting on and being banned from baseball. His appearance led to him being Tombstoned by Kane, which would go on to become an annual tradition and help him get elected into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004.
Pazienza, who had ringside seats for the event, is considered one of the greatest Super Middleweight boxers of all-time, going 46-9. Some of his more memorable wins have come against Joe Frazier and Roberto Duran.
Flowers was a guest interviewer and ring announcer at WrestleMania XIV. Her interview with The Rock marked the first time the People's Champ uttered his famous catch phrase, "If you smell what The Rock is cookin'." Flowers' claim to fame was having an alleged affair with Bill Clinton. The affair allegedly took place while Clinton was governor of Arkansas, but it didn't become a news story until his presidency.
