To follow up on an earlier report over the weekend, WWE has reached out to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Roddy Piper, Jim Ross and many others to make an appearance at Wrestlemania 30 this Sunday in New Orleans. Dave Meltzer reports that Johnson is expected to make some kind of a cameo on the show although it remains to be seen if it will be live or pre-taped. Austin revealed on his podcast that he planned to attend the Hall of Fame ceremony and wouldn’t confirm if he would show up for the actual event the following day.
