We noted before that WWE has contacted several huge names from the past for cameo appearances at WrestleMania XXX. One of those stars is The Rock. WWE also reportedly contacted other names such as Ric Flair, Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Roddy Piper and even Jim Ross in regards to playing a role this weekend.

The impression given is that The Rock will be on the show in some form of a cameo, but whether it's live or taped isn't known. People in WWE say Rock will be on the show in some form.

We also know that WWE pitched some ideas to Steve Austin about appearing on the show so with him deciding to make the trip to New Orleans, that could be an indication that he's accepted one of those ideas.
