PWInsider.com reports that WWE and Hogan are still working on a deal, but the two sides are close to an agreement. So close, in fact, that WWE Creative is working on multiple match and storyline possibilities for the Hulkster at the big pay-per-view. The most recent discussion revolved around Hogan's partnering with John Cena, either in the ring in a tag team match against The Real Americans or simply in Cena's corner.
The site also reports that Rowdy Roddy Piper might return for WrestleMania 30, and a singles match with Hogan is one of the only one-on-one matches the company is discussing for the Hulkster. Other ideas for Piper at the pay-per-view include Hogan and Cena vs. Piper and another heel, or Hogan and Piper vs. The Real Americans.
A deal with Hogan is not yet official, but the company seems to feel that the two sides will reach an agreement before WrestleMania 30.
As for the rumored Cena vs. Bray Wyatt match at Mania, PWInsider contradicts The Wrestling Observer's previous report that WWE Creative is discussing the match. According to PWInsider, the company discussed the idea a while ago with the intention of Wyatt winning the Royal Rumble and challenging Cena for the World Heavyweight Championship at Mania. But those discussions happened before the company decided to unify the WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship.
As of now, Cena vs. Wyatt is reportedly not likely for WrestleMania 30, though it could happen in the future.
