At WrestleMania 39, fans were treated to a surprise appearance by none other than Russell Crowe. Although he didn’t appear in person, the actor made a virtual appearance via video package to introduce the highly-anticipated Hell in a Cell bout between Finn Balor and Edge. Crowe’s appearance was part of the promotion for his upcoming film, The Pope’s Exorcist, which is set to hit theaters on April 14.
Following the event, both Crowe and Edge took to social media to comment on the appearance. Crowe expressed his admiration for the spectacle of WrestleMania and how much he enjoyed the experience. Edge, on the other hand, expressed his gratitude to Crowe for introducing the match and his excitement for the victory he secured against Balor in the Hell in a Cell bout.
Despite Edge’s triumph, the match was not without its share of drama. Balor suffered a severe cut on his head, which required staples to close. The injury occurred when Edge threw a ladder at Balor’s head, causing the nasty cut that briefly halted the match. Despite the setback, Edge was able to bounce back and emerge victorious in what was an intense and unforgettable Hell in a Cell bout.
Overall, the surprise appearance of Russell Crowe at WrestleMania 39 was a thrilling moment for fans, and the Hell in a Cell match between Finn Balor and Edge was a highlight of the event. The injury sustained by Balor only added to the drama of the match, making it a memorable moment in the history of professional wrestling.
