Yahoo Sports has an article on Alex Rodriguez appearing at WrestleMania 28. The article noted that he was "in awe" and "had a look of pure joy" when John Cena stopped for a few seconds during his ring entrance for the main event to greet the Yankees player and Torrie Wilson.

The article also notes that Cena asked Rodriguez to tell his teammate Derek Jeter that he was wearing Jeter's Nikes for the match and that A-Rod had Jeter, CC Sabathia, Nick Swisher and Russell Martin at his new Miami home before the show.
