This is the first event WWE has ever hosted at the Lincoln Financial Field. It only made sense to get one of R&B Biggest stars to perform at one of the biggest venues in Philadelphia.
Paul “Triple H” Levesque, Chief content officer of WWE, took to instagram to make the announcement.

“Excited to welcome Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter @cocojones to #WrestleMania XL this weekend, where she’ll perform our country’s National Anthem to kick off WrestleMania Saturday.”

Some fans suspect that Triple H is playing chess with this opening act booking, insinuating that Levesque wants to be down with Philadelphia’s core demographic.
