Superstars Return for Wrestlemania 27

Will Triple H be the man to end Undertaker`s streak?

WWE has pulled out all the stops ahead of this year`s Wrestlemania, bringing back many of their top stars to add excitement to the upcoming event.

In recent weeks The Rock has been announced as the special guest host of the event while Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels have also been plucked from retirement to enhance the event which will take place on April 3rd at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

This year`s showpiece event has echoes reminiscent of last year, with the biggest match not been for any title but for one of the greatest streaks in sports entertainment history.

Last year The Heart Break kid Shawn Michaels tried to do what no man had ever done before, beat the Undertaker at Wrestlemania. Michaels put his career on the line and fell just short of ending the deadman`s streak in a pulsating bout.

This year it is the turn of Triple H, Michaels old D-generation X partner, to try and end Undertaker`s 18 match winning streak at the event. The eight time WWE Champion competed against the Phenom at Wrestlemania 10 years ago but will be hopeful of a different outcome this time around.

Elsewhere on the card at the showcase of the immortals, both the WWE and the World Heavyweight Titles will be defended. WWE Champ The Miz will defend his title against John Cena in an eagerly anticipated grudge match that has been building up steam for months.

World Heavyweight Champion Edge will be defending his title against the brash and arrogant newcomer that is Alberto Del Rio. The Mexican won the Royal Rumble back in January thus earning himself a title shot against the champion of his choice at Wrestlemania. Edge will be gunning to get his hands on Del Rio, who has been a constant thorn in his side since the rumble.

Elsewhere on the card two time WWE Champion Sheamus will tackle Daniel Bryan for his United States title. CM Punk will face Randy Orton in a fiery contest with the latter looking to end the career of the Nexus leader. Ring veteran Jerry “The King “ Lawler will step into the squared circle once again to tackle his former broadcast partner Michael Cole.

Irregardless of what happens in Atlanta, this year`s Wrestlemania has all the ingredients to eclipse the greatest wrestling pay per views of all time.
