We're officially halfway through the biggest WrestleMania of all time with night one of Mania 40 taking place in Philadelphia last night. Headlined by Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns and The Rock, the Showcase Of The Immortals was opened by WWE Women's World Champion Rhea Ripley defending her title against Becky Lynch in one of the best matches of the evening.

But we all know WrestleMania is about more than just what happens in the ring, it's also a chance for WWE's production team to go HAM on epic entrances. Enter: Motionless In White. For Rhea's very metal entrance, the Pennsylvania natives tore through her theme song Demon In Your Dreams, with a clearly ecstatic Rhea stomping and screaming along with frontman Chris Motionless. She even had the initials MIW painted on her face.

Check out the full entrance below.

Speaking to Kerrang! last year about her entrance theme, Rhea explained that when she joined the Judgement Day faction and wanted to mix up her music, she messaged Chris Motionless direct to hook up something big.

"My music is such a big part of who I am. If I don’t feel my music and it doesn’t get me in the zone and make me feel a certain way, nothing good’s gonna come from it. I’m not going to be the Rhea Ripley you see every week. I told them when to add the screams at the start so I could do my stomp – it’s the Mitch Lucker stomp.

"I used to try to listen to music before heading out into the ring, and Motionless In White were my go-to, but because Judgment Day run Monday Night Raw, pretty much, I’m out there all night. I don’t have any time to prepare, sit down and listen to anything because I’m running around like a chook with its head cut off. But my song is enough to get me hyped – just that smallest bit of time before I step though the curtain, it gets me as hyped as I need to be."
