Earlier this week it was reported that the WWE were planning to provide one particular superstar a special WrestleMania entrance, and now it looks as if the WWE could be doing the same for another superstar at the grandest stage of them all.
The current United States Champion Rusev is rumoured to be having a special entrance for his WrestleMania debut where he defends his United States Championship against John Cena whilst Cena – as always – is expected to receive a special entrance before the match.
The current idea for Rusev based on a casting e-mail being posted online suggests the company are trying to find people to play the part of Russian Soldiers, but the WWE are continuing to push the boat out for another special entrance.

With WrestleMania being the biggest event of the year and it being less than three weeks away, the WWE are now starting to look for extras to play roles in certain entrances. Another casting call for extras has been sent out and the WWE are looking for extras to portray scarecrows at WrestleMania 31, but unlike the Russian Soldiers there is a little bit more ambiguity as to which lucky WWE superstar will have scarecrows as part of their entrance at WrestleMania.
Right now it’s not clear how many people the WWE are looking for to play the part of scarecrows but the likelihood is that the WWE would want to place them on both sides of the ramp as they usually do when The Undertaker appears with the druids.

The Undertaker will probably have his own special entrance, especially with The Deadman opting to use another Johnny Cash song as his theme music, so the scarecrows probably won’t be used for The Undertaker’s entrance which leaves two favourites.
This is Bray Wyatt’s second WrestleMania and his second marquee match at the event, having fallen to John Cena last year. He has a big task on his hands trying to put on a great show for the fans against a clearly weaker Undertaker who is coming back off a vicious loss to Brock Lesnar who conquered the streak at last year's 'Mania.
Using scarecrows for a Bray Wyatt entrance would not only be a great sight for the fans but it would suggest that the WWE still have the faith in Bray Wyatt as his gimmick can also pull off this entrance which would be surreal against The Undertaker.
However, considering Bray Wyatt had a live performance as his theme music last year, there is one superstar who the scarecrows will work for far better.
Sting is the favourite right now as the superstar who this casting call is aimed at. His match with Triple H will be the first time Sting has ever competed in the WWE and it could probably be his only match too, so it’s only right for the WWE to go all out and ensure Sting’s first ever full entrance and match is memorable.
Sting’s gimmick probably suits the entrance more as well, the gimmick was inspired by The Crowe and we see and hear it in his theme music as well, the whole mystique surrounding Sting suits his entrance a lot better than anyone else on the entire roster and if anyone deserves a special entrance at WrestleMania, it’s Sting.
