Seth Rollins
When WWE abruptly had Seth Rollins turning on the Shield, they had to quickly put together things for his new character. The company came up with a new entrance theme song for him to use since it would not make sense for him to use the old one. Apparently, the song was not well received by management, so a new one has already been ordered for Rollins.

Jeff Hardy
"Willow was my bad guy identity when Matt Hardy and I were running the OMEGA shows. I would be Jeff Hardy as the good guy and Willow would be the bad guy wrestling Matt across the indie circuit. It was an alter-ego back then, and now I had a chance to bring it back in TNA. I'm glad they gave me the chance to do it because it means the world to me to see how cool the promos have turned out and the vignettes leading up to the debut, and the entrance. The in-ring matches are still a work in progress for me, but it's fun to be that extension of myself, especially now at 36 years old on national TV." - Jeff Hardy discusses his new character on Impact Wrestling

Hulk Hogan
"He's definitely a legendary guy that deserves to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, I'm glad he got to go in when he was still alive. I always respected him as a performer, some of his matches were pretty quick I remember he came in the Winnipeg arena once and beat Andre the Giant in 30 seconds, at the time I was like, 'What a rip off! That sucks.' But I remember Wrestlemania 6 where he had a classic with Hulk Hogan, much like a lot of guys from that time period he had good matches when he had the right opponent." - Chris Jericho on Ultimate Warrior as a performer

Justin Gabriel
Despite not being utilized all that frequently on television, Justin Gabriel was given a spot in the Andre the Giant match at Wrestlemania 30.

Andre the Giant

April 4, 2014
John Cena
There is still a strong push within WWE to add Luke Harper and Erick Rowan to the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal match, as many feel that they have done a good job throughout the past several months. However, some in management feel that being involved in the match with John Cena and Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania 30 is enough of a reward for them.
April 4, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
While the company may be promoting the fact that anyone can win the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30, WWE officials really only have a small number of candidates for the role. Guys like Dolph Ziggler and Christian, despite being former world heavyweight champions, really do not stand much of a chance of walking away with the trophy.
April 4, 2014
Sami Zayn
Since management still is trying to figure out a way to get the WWE NXT guys involved at Wrestlemania 30, there is a chance that Sami Zayn and Adrian Neville could be given one of the three remaining spots in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at the pay per view on Sunday. Rob Van Dam is a strong candidate to take a spot as well.

Hulk Hogan
"The first day he came in that I met him. He came up to me, I said 'Hello sir, I'm Daniel Bryan' and he says, 'Yeah I know who you are. The 'Yes!' thing is awesome.' The little kid in you is saying 'Holy cow! Hulk Hogan just said I'm awesome!' So that's pretty cool. But I haven't talked to him much beyond that. I would actually be interested to just listen to his stories. He has been around for some of the biggest moments in wrestling history. I'd love to ask him about WrestleMania III. That is an iconic moment, not just in wrestling, but in all entertainment Hulk Hogan slamming Andre the Giant. I'd love to ask about Rocky III! All the kind of stuff. Little things that you always wanted to know." - Daniel Bryan on meeting Hulk Hogan backstage

March 27, 2014
Brodus Clay
While he has been training especially hard over the last couple of months to make it happen, it is being said that the biggest reason why Brodus Clay is being given a match at Wrestlemania 30, where he will be a participant in the Andre the Giant battle royal, is because of his involvement in the new Scooby Doo movie that WWE is promoting.
