Hulkamania was running wild at WrestleMania XXX.

That's because bona fide grappling legend Hulk Hogan returned to WWE and hosted the company's annual spring extravaganza, which this year emanates from The Big Easy, New Orleans.

Hogan banded with A-Team star Mr T to face "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Paul Orndorff in the main event of the very first WrestleMania and he was back, albeit in a non-wrestling capacity, for the milestone 30th showing.

You can see what the Hulkster has in store by watching a repeat of the biggest event of the year, on Sky Sports Box Office and Sky Sports HD Box Office (priced £17.95 for UK customers, 24.95 for viewers in the Republic of Ireland).

Aside from Hogan's presence, there was a series of illuminating battles to enjoy. The WWE World Heavyweight Title was on the line when Randy Orton faced former Evolution stablemate Batista and either Triple H or Daniel Bryan.

The showdown for sports entertainment's ultimate prize seemed set in stone when Batista won the Royal Rumble and Orton kept hold of his strap at Elimination Chamber - but twists and turns soon followed.

Triple H was forced to accept Bryan's WrestleMania demands after the submission specialist and his fans hijacked an episode of Raw, and the "Yes!" chanter was permitted to enter the big title tussle in The Big Easy if he overcomes The Game earlier in the night.

However, WWE's Chief Operating Officer became irate at Orton and Batista's bickering over that fact, and subsequently announced that should he knock off Bryan, he will enter the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match instead.

So will Triple H or Bryan be the third prong in the WrestleMania main event, and who will leave New Orleans with the cherished strap around their waist?

Icon

There will be no titles defended when The Undertaker locks horns with Brock Lesnar, but the pair will fight for something arguably more precious - the Phenom's unbeaten streak at WrestleMania.

Luminaries such as Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Taker's half-brother Kane and last year's victim CM Punk have all failed to defeat the Deadman at the Show of Shows, with the in-ring icon taking his tally to 21-0.

But he has never faced anyone quite like Brock Lesnar, a man who doesn't say a great deal - he has Paul Heyman for that - but who leaves destruction in his wake, as Mark Henry will testify.

Henry had his elbow dislocated and fractured by The Beast Incarnate and recently felt The Anomaly's force again, when he was sent thundering through the announce table by way of an enormous F5.

The Undertaker is the undisputed king of WrestleMania - but has he finally met his match in Lesnar, a former WWE and UFC Heavyweight Champion?

Elsewhere, John Cena was aiming to down The Wyatt Family's sermon-spewing leader, Bray Wyatt, after he caused him to lose WWE World Heavyweight Championship bouts at both Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber.

Thirty Superstars - Rey Mysterio, Big E, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, Christian, Fandango, and Big Show are eight of them - competed in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

And the entire female roster, including everyone's favourite twins, The Bellas, were aiming to snare AJ Lee's butterfly-emblazoned belt in the Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational.
