Dot Cotton From 'EastEnders' Pops Up At WrestleMania
There was a lot to take in at WrestleMania last night, with Ronda Rousey making her WWE debut (and subsequently winning), John Cena fighting The Undertaker anda small child winning the Raw tag team title alongside Braun Strowman.
But while all that was hogging most of our attention, some eagle-eyed fans noticed there was something else happening in the audience - or, rather, someone else: Dot Cotton.
Well, kind of.

That's right, for some obscure reason, someone in the crowd decided to bring along a print-out of the iconic, chain-smoking EastEnders character played by June Brown, who's been a fixture on British TV since the 1980s.
It's weird and amazing all at the same time.
And, of course, Dot wasn't the only famous face to be seen hanging out in the crowd. Fans were also quick to spot a not-so-inconspicuous John Cena - who's been at the forefront of the WWE for what feels like forever now, but wasn't actually booked to perform on this year's WrestleMania card.
Instead of sitting at home sulking about his exclusion from the wrestling world's biggest event, he decided to nip down to watch from the crowd as a fan.
However, it didn't take long for Cena to grow a bit bored of sitting among the mere mortals as a spectator, and eventually took his cue to dart up the ramp to fight it out with The Undertaker.

While it was a treat to see not only the return of The Undertaker, but also to catch two all-time greats slug it out, the fight itself only lasted a few minutes, with 16-time world champ Cena seen off by his opponent in what felt like no time at all.
The Undertaker ended up hitting him with a Tombstone Piledriver to finish the match - a move that seemed to prove a little too exciting for Cena...
