Witnessing legendary WWE superstars inside the squared- circle has always been a ‘moment in the making’ scene for WWE Universe. World Wrestling Entertainment has always believed to deliver what is ‘best for business’. Since the beginning of 2020, World Wrestling Entertainment has been delivering some memorable in-ring returns ranging from Rated-R Superstar Edge to MVP to Hulk Hogan to John Cena, who makes his return on Smackdown on February 28th, 2020. The gates of Road to Wrestlemania reopened with Royal Rumble when Edge made a shocking return to the WWE.
Some of those returns were incredible while many were unforgettable but the goal of each one of them was the same: To attract more fans to WWE. WWE broke the bank to showcase legendary wrestling stars like Goldberg, Taker, and Fury last year, and that’s a trend that will likely continue as WWE is reportedly planning to build some more excitement for the WWE Universe for ‘The Grandest Stage of them all’ Wrestlemania. If sources are to be believed, after Edge and MVP some big names are all set to lace their boots once again to celebrate the upcoming 36th annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view, going to be held on April 5, 2020.
1. The Undertaker
As a wrestling lover, there is no doubt in mind that Wrestlemania is incomplete without ‘The Phenom’ i.e., The Undertaker. Known as ‘The Last Outlaw’ in the WWE, The Undertaker has had a glorious wrestling career at Wrestlemania where he defeated 21 opponents before being defeated by Brock Lesnar, ending his legendary Wrestlemania winning streak. The Undertaker was last seen standing with Roman Reigns against Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre at Extreme Rules in 2019. Since then, the WWE Universe has been craving to listen to the legendary bells sounds with thunder sounds and a dark arena moment. Reportedly, The American Baddass is in the talks with WWE about making an appearance at the show, but against whom, is still a mystery.
2. John Cena
Considered as one of the greatest wrestling talents in sports entertainment, John Cena is returning to the ring this February 28 on Smackdown. Speculations are rife that Cena is rumored to face Universal Champion The Fiend at the Showcase of the Immortals. Cena is a regular at Mania and is all set for a showdown in his residential home of Tampa Bay, Florida. The Ruthless Aggression-era legend has been busy in between his stints in the film industry.
3. CM Punk
CM Punk joined WWE Backstage on Fox Sports 1 last year, which rose his in-ring return to new heights. CM Punk hasn’t wrestled for WWE in almost six years. WWE Universe is also craving for CM Punk’s return to the ring. If rumors are to be true, Punk could be seen squaring off against The Architect Seth Rollins at Wrestlemania 36. Last year, Rollins took to twitter challenging CM Punk by saying ‘Fight Me’.
4. Triple H
As we all know that Paul Levesque, popularly known as Triple H, has shifted himself from the wrestling ring as a full-time performer due to his commitments as a COO of the company. Last year, The King of Kings defeated his old rival and longtime friend, Batista, in a No Holds Barred Match However, this year, the story is quite different. Royal Rumble has passed by and the Road to WrestleMania is under-way. The shocking news is that Triple H has no ongoing storyline that could culminate in a match at WrestleMania. If sources are to be believed, he might start his storyline with his long-time rival Rock for the ‘The Grandest Stage of them all” Wrestlemania.
Popularly known as ‘The Icon’ in the wrestling world, Sting is expected to rise up once again for one more Wrestlemania moment this year. If sources are to be believed, he might be seen squaring off against The Undertaker in a dream match for WWE Universe. In 2019, WWE hinted at a dream match between The Undertaker and Sting on Twitter. Just a couple of months back, Sting also said that the only bout he would come out of retirement for is that dream match with The Undertaker. At Wrestlemania 31, Sting bagged a golden chance to headline ‘The Grandest stage of them all’ against ‘Cerebral Assassin’ Triple H, where he lost. Later, Sting headlined the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2016.
Bringing these legends back to the ring once again would surely be an electric and astonishing moment for WWE Universe. Let’s wait and watch, who will rise up to walk on ‘Road to Wrestlemania this year.
