The rumored main event for WrestleMania XXX could be a tag team contest featuring Hulk Hogan and Roddy Piper.

Since WrestleMania XXX is an anniversary show, the WWE wants to make the event memorable for older fans. The first WrestleMania show had a tag team main event with Hogan and Mr T teaming up to face Piper and Paul Orndorff. Both WrestleMania X and XX failed to feature nostalgic matches so WWE wants to make this one feel more special.

For the case of WrestleMania XXX, Hogan is rumored to team up with John Cena to take on Piper and a current wrestler heel. It’s being reported that Piper wanted CM Punk to be his partner, although WWE officials didn’t want this to happen because Punk is too popular with the fans even though he is playing the bad guy. At the moment, Punk might face Triple H at the big show instead.

Nobody knows who Piper’s partner will be, but it could be someone like Sheamus that could fill in the role. Sheamus has been injured for many months, and it would be good for him to be put into a high profile storyline. Not to mention Sheamus is better as a heel since fans thought he was getting stale being a babyface.

Another name people have thrown into the mix is Randy Orton. This is because his father Bob Orton was in the corner of Piper back in the first WrestleMania event. Randy is a good choice, although he might not be available since he’s the current WWE World Heavyweight Championship. WWE could let Randy lose the belt to Brock Lesnar so we can see Batista vs. Lesnar for the first time.
