Several former WWE stars booked for WrestleMania weekend



WWE has already begun contacting some former Superstars for appearances during WrestleMania weekend.

PWInsider is reporting that WWE has reached out to JBL and he will be in Tampa during Mania weekend. JBL has been part of a few Kickoff show panels for some big events and that might be what he is being brought in for as there's a 2-hour Kickoff show scheduled before WrestleMania.

PWInsider also reported that Hornswoggle and Santino Marella are booked for Mania weekend. Marella has been rumored to be part of WWE's plans to launch an NXT brand in Canada. There is no word how far along they are with those plans.
