On Sunday night fans of wrestling will get the chance to watch NBC’s one-hour "WrestleMania 30" special reliving moments celebrating 30 years of the popular sports in an entertainment extravaganza. According to Cageside Seats on Sunday, the special will include some popular faces that have kept the wrestling fans impressed over the past 30 years. Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and The Rock are all making appearances for the special and their participation might even include a few headlocks.

Hulk Hogan has always been a fan favorite. With a professional career spanning five decades, Hogan is widely considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. And he definitely is a celebrity as he is the most well-known wrestler in the world. However, his star power is equal to Dwayne Johnson who is better known as “The Rock.” He had seventeen championship reigns in WWE, including ten as world champion winning the WWF/E Championship eight times and the WCW/World Championship twice.

The show won’t be all about WWE icons that once were part of the ring as there is a few matches for the fans to appreciate too. Viewers should expect to see John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt and the heavily discussed Undertaker defending his undefeated streak against former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar. The WrestleMania on these two matches will definitely have people off their couches and cheering on their favorite wrestlers.

WWE's annual show was a very successful moment for the WWE organization when it first aired on the WWE Network. "WrestleMania 30" sold-out the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans with more than 75,000 fans from all 50 states in attendance. Scheduled to be a fan favorite, "WrestleMania 30" is going to be seen on NBC and the opportunity to introduce the sport to more people is possible while other fans relive the great moments seen live in April.

"WrestleMania 30" airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on NBC.
