WWE is weeks away from its busy time of the year with the Royal Rumble and then WrestleMania 39. The company is looking towards the future with its biggest event of the year on April 1 and 2, 2023, in Los Angeles, CA, with the tagline, ‘WrestleMania Goes Hollywood.’
In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE is “trying to get a lot of celebrity involvement in the show with the theme of being from Hollywood, and the mainstream attention that comes from celebrities being there.”
The report noted that co-CEO Nick Khan has a lot of connections from his days as an agent with people in sports and entertainment, so that’s one way they could get some outside names to be part of the show.
As previously reported, WWE is looking to bring John Cena in for a match at Mania, his first bout since SummerSlam 2021. Also, Steve Austin is reportedly open to listening to offers for WrestleMania 39 following how successful his return turned out earlier this year.
WWE is still hoping to have The Rock come in for a match with Roman Reigns, which is what WWE has been hoping for years, but the possibility of that match happening comes down to his busy schedule.
