WWE is reportedly keen on having another legendary name feature in the upcoming WrestleMania PPV.
WWE is reported to be planning to bring in another legend on the level of “Stone Cold” Steve for WrestleMania 38.
It’s believed that the Hall of Famer will be the subject of a shocking in-ring return for this year’s iteration of the Show of Shows, with Kevin Owens suspected to be his opponent for the major event.
According to Dave Meltzer (H/T Sportskeeda.com), WWE is working on having another legendary name feature when the event comes around, noting whoever it is will be of the same caliber as Austin. He pointed out that The Rock will be busy while John Cena also has other commitments.
The Wrestling Observer insider deduced it could be Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, or The Undertaker as those are the only other available names on the same level as Austin, though he wasn’t entirely sure.
WrestleMania 38 will be a two-night show, as it has been since 2020, and is set to air from the AT&T Stadium in Texas on April 2-3. Two matches have been confirmed for the time being and another will be by the end of Elimination Chamber this weekend.
Brock Lesnar will square off with Universal Champion Roman Reigns following his Royal Rumble win but could face a different opponent if Reigns loses his title to Goldberg at this weekend’s PPV.
Women’s Royal Rumble winner Royal Rumble winner Ronda Rousey will face Charlotte Flair. The pair will go at each other at Elimination Chamber as well, but as part of a tag team match. Rousey will partner up with Naomi against Flair and Sonya Deville.
Becky Lynch is yet to learn her opponent as that’s set to be decided by a six-woman affair inside the Elimination Chamber.
