*Glass shatters*

We are just two weeks away from the 40th annual WrestleMania and rumours over a possible appearance from "Stone Cold" Steve Austin are very much swirling right now.

The two-night event on April 6 and 7, 2024 will feature Cody Rhodes and Seth "Freakin" Rollins, who will go head to head with "The Rock" and Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

LA Knight will also come up against AJ Styles, while Logan Paul, Randy Orton and Kevin Owens face-off in a much-anticipated triple threat match at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

It is set to be a blockbuster event and things could be about to get even better, with The Wrestling Observer reporting that "Stone Cold" could be involved in some capacity at WrestleMania 40 alongside The Undertaker and John Cena.

Dave Meltzer reports that “the belief right now” is that Cena, “Stone Cold” and The Undertaker will “have something” in some capacity at WrestleMania, although nothing is yet official.

In addition to those reports, PWInsider revealed on Wednesday that WWE is currently in negotiations to feature both "Stone Cold" and Hulk Hogan during the WrestleMania 40 event.

There is no update on the specific role Austin will play at The Grandest Stage Of Them All, according to reporter Mike Johnson, but discussions have taken place to ensure his participation.

Earlier this week, on Monday Night Raw, "Stone Cold's" face could be seen on a production truck in the background of a segment between "The Rock" and Cody Rhodes, sparking excitement amongst fans.

Here's how fans on social media reacted to a possible Austin return at next month's event.

One said: "This will be the greatest WrestleMania of all time. Holy s**t," while another commented: "When that glass shatters during Rock's people's elbow on Night 2."

A third wrote: "Yep. Cody is winning with the help of Austin when The Rock tries to interfere. It’s so clear now."

A fourth added: "Don't play with our emotions, WWE. If Stone Cold's coming back, make it worth it."

John Cena has already sparked rumours of an appearance at WrestleMania 40.

“It’s April 6, Philadelphia," he said on Jimmy Fallon. "I know exactly where it is. I’m free that day, I’m just saying to you guys out there.”
