This year's showcase of the immortals will definitely provide plenty of nostalgia for fans as well as a glimpse into the future of the company. 
 
It's that time of year once again, WWE hosts the 38th annual WrestleMania live at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. This is WWE's biggest event and this year is being billed as stupendous. The company are continuing holding the event over two-nights, which has been met with positive feedback from fans. 
 
Here is what's in store for fans at WrestleMania.
 
Champion vs. Champion
One of the biggest rivalries this past year has been Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar. After months of twists and turns, both men will finally settle the score when they headline night 2 of WrestleMania. 
 
This year's WrestleMania will be the third time Reigns and Lesnar will main event against one another. The main event of WrestleMania is a spot both are very familiar with. Lesnar will main event his fifth, while Reigns will main event his sixth. 
 
It'll be a winner take all matchup with the winner walking out of WrestleMania as both the WWE Universal championship and WWE championship.
 
Stone Cold Steve Austin
One of the biggest surprises for this year is that WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin will be returning to confront Kevin Owens on night one. 
 
For weeks, Owens has insulted the state of Texas and after failed attempts to get a WrestleMania match, he thought of another way to get on the event and that was by calling out The Texas Rattlesnake. 
 
It remains to be seen whether the KO Show will be just another segment or lead to an actual one-on-one match. Austin hasn't wrestled since WrestleMania XIX, when he was defeated The Rock and retired. It'll be interesting to see what WWE have planned for the KO Show with Stone Cold Steve Austin, but it does sound like it'll be closing night one. 
 
Celebrities taking part
It wouldn't be a WrestleMania without some celebrity involvement. This year, WWE is including more than usual. Johnny Knoxville will be competing in an Anything Goes Match against Sami Zayn. The two have been involved in an ongoing feud dating back to this year's Royal Rumble. Based on the kind of stunts Knoxville is known for, he surely has something planned for the biggest stage. 
 
Logan Paul will be taking part in his second-straight WrestleMania. Last year, he was on the receiving end of a stunner from Kevin Owens following his match. This year, he'll actually be getting into the ring when he teams with The Miz to take on Dominick and Rey Mysterio. Paul has an athletic background from his time competing in wrestling, so he could surprise fans with how quick he adapts to pro wrestling. 
 
Finally, Pat McAfee will get his WrestleMania moment when he takes on Austin Theory. McAfee has documented his love for pro wrestling and considers performing at WrestleMania to be a lifelong dream come true. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon offered him an opportunity to compete at the grandest stage when he was a guest on The Pat McAfee Show. Theory was revealed as his opponent on the following night on SmackDown. 
 
McAfee is no stranger to the squared circle. He has competed in NXT and showcased his abilities in the ring. He could be the odds on favourite to be the celebrity with the better match when it's all said and done.
