Near Miss At WrestleMania
Disaster was narrowly avoided at last night’s WrestleMania when the entrance area caught fire. Fan footage shared on Twitter shows the Undertaker’s flames overshooting and engulfing one side of the stage during the ending sequence.

Fortunately the stage was very high this year and there were no fans close to the flames. There are no reports of any injuries and it appears things were quickly brought under control by a single hero with an extinguisher.

WWE usually goes all out with Undertaker’s pyro and effects and it isn’t the first time accidents have happened. In 2008 when WrestleMania was also in Orlando, fireworks hit fans. Then during Elimination Chamber in 2010, Taker himself was set on fire and had to sprint away from the flames.
According to the Orlando Sentinel another smaller fire had to be put out in a grassy, elevated lot near the stadium’s loading docks, after a mystery cigarette ignited trash.
WWE hasn’t commented on either incident.
