We noted before that WWE had a local casting agency in San Francisco working to cast Russian soldiers and scarecrows at WrestleMania 31. The soldiers are obviously for Rusev's entrance and the scarecrows could be for Sting or Bray Wyatt but likely Sting.

It turns out the same casting agency is booking both roles and they are using the same extras for both roles as a way to save money. They are looking for males between 24 and 33 with no facial hair. The agency is paying extras $1,100 each total for the three days.

Extras must be available to train on March 27th and 28th, then perform on the day of WrestleMania, March 29th. The first day will consist of costume fitting and a walk-through for four hours. They will do a late night rehearsal after the Hall of Fame on Saturday night from 11pm until 3am. They're then required to be at Levi's Stadium all day and evening on Sunday.
