WWE 'working on' another legend appearance at WrestleMania 40 and it's surprised everyone

WWE 'working on' another legend appearance at WrestleMania 40 and it's surprised everyone

Another WWE icon could be making an appearance.

WWE are reportedly 'working on' reaching an agreement for another legend to appear at WrestleMania 40.

The Rock will compete in a WWE match for the first time in eight years when he teams up with Roman Reigns to face Cody Rhodes on night one of the event next weekend.

The Hollywood star has played a pivotal role in the build-up to the event, which will also see Reigns defend his Undisputed Universal Championship against Rhodes on night two in Philadelphia.

The Rock, real name Dwayne Johnson, was appointed to the TKO board in January, and has made regular appearances on weekly television shows since then.

According to The Wrestling Observer, WWE are in talks to have fellow legends 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and John Cena appear at WrestleMania in some capacity.

Now, a third huge name could make an appearance - and his identity has surprised everyone.

PWInsider claim there has been talk that WWE are 'working on' having former WWE Champion Hulk Hogan appear at the event, although the exact role or capacity he would appear is unclear.

Hogan was one of the biggest stars of professional wrestling - and indeed, the USA - during the 1980s and 1990s, and his WrestleMania showdowns with Andre the Giant and The Rock are two of the most acclaimed matches in WWE history.

The 70-year-old is still contracted to WWE, and teased entering the Royal Rumble earlier this year, although it has been claimed that his health issues mean he would not pass a physical nor ever be cleared to compete.

Hogan was previously the guest host of WrestleMania 30 and 37, in 2014 and 2020 respectively.

His last WWE match was against Randy Orton at SummerSlam in 2006, although there were ultimately failed negotiations for 'The Hulkster' to have a match with John Cena at WrestleMania 25 in 2009.

The WrestleMania 40 card is packed full of star names, with Seth Rollins defending his World Heavyweight Championship against Drew McIntyre.

Logan Paul will defend his United States Championship against Randy Orton and Kevin Owens in a triple threat match, while Jey Uso takes on his brother Jimmy Uso in a grudge match for the ages.

Rhea Ripley defends her Women's World Championship against Becky Lynch, while Royal Rumble winner Bayley challenges Iyo Sky for the WWE Women's Championship.
