WWE Wants Big Name for WrestleMania 25

Earlier today we received reliable information from word going around last night at Raw that the WWE have reached out to a few of their former top superstars in regard to them appearing at the 25th anniversary of Wrestlemania.

We understand that the company feels having one of the biggest stars from the past will benefit the occasion and that it would mark the significance of the 25th anniversary. From what we've been told they want a former star to work a match at the show that will be live in London, England as well as several dates before to build the match. With the show heading to the United Kingdom, it's seen that they need to reach out even more to the American audience, and bringing in a huge name will help do that.

Several names have been mentioned, and unsurprisingly they include 'Stonecold' Steve Austin & The Rock. Other names mentioned include Brock Lesnar & Goldberg but it's unlikely that Lesnar will be there due to his UFC contract. Goldberg we believe would be willing, but scheduling issues may count The Rock out, and maybe Austin as well. His physical state isn't considered to be an issue for a one time deal. Several matches have been pitched, and if what we're being told is right, the priority is for either Rock or Austin, and they will more than likely be going up against CM Punk or John Cena, dependant on who creative decide will move forward as the World Heavyweight Champion. Whoever doesn't hold the title would then meet Rock or Austin, and we can all but confirm that despite their title match last Friday night being deemed their 'final encounter', they will meet again for the title for the last time at No Way Out, most likely in a Steel Cage or Hell in a Cell match in theme with the name of the pay-per-view.
