5 Wrestlers that could return at WrestleMania 34
The biggest WWE pay-per-view of the year is almost here and the promotion is in full throttle mode when it comes to the preparations. A string of storylines and feuds are currently being built up for the show. Brock Lesnar is set to defend his WWE Universal title against Roman Reigns when a dream match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura is also booked. The debut of Ronda Rousey and return of Kurt Angle are other add-ons for the show.
But these matches alone are not going to do the trick.
WrestleMania is all about grand moments and in professional wrestling, nothing produces a huge pop like surprise returns. The adrenaline rush of seeing a wrestler return to the squared circle is unmatched and this year also, WWE could pull off some similar returns at the Granddaddy of them all.
#5 Rey Mysterio
For the past couple of months, Rey Mysterio has been linked with a full-time deal to the WWE. And this is mostly due to his return as a surprise entrant at the Royal Rumble. He did manage to make jaws drop by showing up at the pay-per-view but then again, it proved to be a one-off appearance.
On the positive side, the return proved that Mysterio still has a legion of fans behind him. Even at the age of 43, Mysterio can give the current talent a run for their money when it comes to star power.
The rumors are suggesting a showdown between Mysterio and John Cena at WrestleMania. But the chances of the same happening are low since Cena is invested in chasing Undertaker now.
Nevertheless, if the Master of 619 is indeed returning at WrestleMania, he is bound to get a huge reaction from the WWE Universe. WWE just needs to figure out the right storyline in which they can put Mysterio in.
