The 35th edition of the show of shows is shaping up to be an exciting event, and could very well end up becoming one of the greatest WrestleManias in recent memory.
Although we are bound to get a long string of matches to fill out the 8-hour show, it's a given that we will get to see former Superstars making their return for one-off appearances at the Grandest Stage Of Them All.
WrestleMania has had a tradition of past Superstars making cameo appearances and an occasional match at the event. Austin's return at WrestleMania 21 as the special guest on Piper's Pit, The Rock's 6-second match against Eric Rowan at WrestleMania 32, and The Undertaker squashing Cena at WrestleMania 34 are just a few examples of major Superstars returning back for one more hurrah.
Let's take a look at six WWE Superstars who might make a comeback at MetLife Stadium.

#6 & #5 Trish Stratus and Lita
Ever since Sasha and Bayley won the first ever Women's tag team titles at the Elimination Chamber PPV, rumours have been running rampant stating, that WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Lita might come back for a tag team match against the Boss N' Hug Connection at WrestleMania 35.
Although judging by the current storyline, we might get a triple threat tag team match at WrestleMania, featuring the champions taking on Nia-Tamina and Beth Phoenix-Natalya, Trish and Lita could still come back.
WWE is doing everything in their power to turn this event into the biggest PPV of all time. They could add Trish and Lita into the match, making it a Fatal Four Way match for the Women's tag team titles.
#4 The Undertaker
There's little hope left that The Undertaker will wrestle at the show of shows ever again. He isn't slated to appear at the event as of now, but there's no telling what might happen at the last moment.
If The Undertaker is never coming back to the ring again, WrestleMania 35 could be the perfect stage for him to come back and address the crowd one last time, stating that he's riding off into the sunset, never to return again. Additionally, the Phenom could be inducted into the Hall of Fame next year.
#3 Ric Flair
The last time we saw The Nature Boy was when he was beaten up by the returning Batista on an episode of Raw. Flair never got to address the crowd and was shown in an unconscious state backstage.
As of now, Flair has not appeared at all since the attack. Will we see him make an appearance at Mania, and interfere in the match between Triple H and Batista? This possibility can't be overlooked, as the dirtiest player in the game never goes down without a fight.
He might not be in any condition to retaliate at this point, but The Nature Boy could end up playing a significant role in the No Holds Barred match at WrestleMania 35, helping The Game to dispose of Batista once and for all.
Or, the impossible could happen, and Flair would turn on Triple H to reveal that the entire "attack" was a charade to coax The Game into accepting Batista's challenge.
#2 The Rock

With Elias not being featured in a match as of now, it's safe to assume that he might perform a song or two in front of 80,000 roaring WWE fans. As always is the case, Elias is going to get interrupted at WrestleMania. Why not let The Rock come back for a one-off segment with Elias and give us a good old Rocky Concert, the kind we got on an episode of Raw in 2003?
The segment would possibly end with Elias getting a People's Elbow, but a 15-minute segment featuring The Rock and Elias is always better than listening to a band perform and hog the spotlight in a worthless segment. If The Rock is coming back at MetLife Stadium, there's little doubt he will have a face-off with Elias.
#1 John Cena
Ever since Angle announced that he is going to retire at WrestleMania, fans have been clamouring for John Cena to come back and give Angle his last match.
The story makes complete sense, as Angle was Cena's first opponent in WWE, back in 2002. the storyline could be played out like this:
Angle doesn't get an opponent until the night of Mania. He finally goes into the ring and addresses the wrestlers backstage. He goes on to berate them, stating that no one is gutsy enough to face him at WrestleMania.
Out comes John Cena to a huge pop, accepting Angle's challenge. This entire segment will be an ode to the first time these two Superstars met, leading to Angle pinning Cena and refusing a handshake.
The scenario of Cena's debut could be played out here once again, with Cena coming out on top this time and shaking Angle's had to give him a well-deserved WrestleMania sendoff.
