It is thought that Hulk Hogan may be out of the picture for a feud, as is Bret Hart, thouh Legends suchs as Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat and Terry Funk are still expressing an interest. However, it has been said that Vince McMahon wants to pursue and different and unique angle with Orton's 'Legend Killer' gimmick at Wrestlemania.
It was set a while ago that John Cena would be winning the Royal Rumble, but concerns did arise that people may have grown tired of his series with Kurt Angle. Shawn Michaels' recent involvement with Cena could very well lead to Michaels getting a spot in the Wrestlemania Main Event. This has not been finalised though, since many think that would be unjust in fan's eyes, given Michaels lost at the Royal Rumble.
Also, the backstage word is apparently that the recently debuted Spirit Squad have been a huge success. The team were brought in originally as henchmen for Eric Bischoff to utilise, but are now going to be used as a means of getting the very weak Raw tag team division off the ground. SmackDown! has strength in their tag ranks, but Raw is struggling with only two established teams (Spirit Squad and Cade/Murdoch) and two jobber teams (Val Venis/Viscera and The Hearthrobs). Plans are already in the works to throw a face team in the mix for Spirit Squad to enter their first real program with come Wrestlemania.
