WWE is reportedly planning on making a big push for Hulk Hogan merchandise and legends merchandise based on a “big four” of Hogan, The Undertaker, Ultimate Warrior and Steve Austin. As part of this deal, WWE is wanting to get all four to appear at WrestleMania XXX in April. Of course, Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker and The Ultimate Warrior will all be in town and will appear at WrestleMania 30. As you know by now, Hogan is hosting the show, ‘Taker has a match on the show and The Ultimate Warrior will be on stage when they bring the Hall of Fame inductees out on stage. That leaves Steve Austin who they are currently in talks with.
As previously reported, Austin has mentioned that he had no interest in going to WrestleMania just to be there, and that he would only be interested in attending if he had a good reason. WWE reportedly wants to come up with a good storyline to bring Austin to WrestleMania this year in a non-wrestling role. The idea has apparently been pitched to Austin, however we have yet to hear of any kind of deal being reached.
