WrestleMania sign catches fire at the Rumble

The WrestleMania sign hanging from the rafters at the Rumble caught fire thanks to the pyro which hit after Ronda Rousey won the Royal Rumble match.

Fans underneath the sign were quickly evacuated from their seats as riggers brought down the sign from the rafters, all this while the match between Becky and Doudrop was happening.

As soon as the sign was completely lowered, several personnel attacked it with fire extinguishers to remove the flames. Eventually security cordoned off the area until it was fixed and riggers slowly put the sign back up in its place.

After the sign was safely in place, the chairs were rearranged and everyone was allowed back to their place. But towards the end of the show, with a few minutes remaining in the men’s Rumble match, security once again evacuated the section underneath the sign in anticipation for more fireworks following the conclusion of the show.

And when Brock Lesnar won the match and pointed towards the sign, pyro once again set off…and the sign caught fire for the second time!
