The main card opens with the host of WrestleMania XXX, Hulk Hogan, making his way down to the ring. Hogan grabs the mic, and let me tell you something, brother! He welcomes everyone in the Superdome… which he calls the Silverdome… and everyone watching on the WWE Network to WrestleMania XXX. Tonight is about 30 years of WrestleMania moments, and there are definitely more to come tonight. And you never know when there's going to be another… THE GLASS SHATTERS! THE GLASS SHATTERS! THE GLASS SHATTERS! STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN IS HERE! Austin grabs a mic and asks the crowd if they're ready for WrestleMania XXX. He jokingly mocks Hogan for accidentally calling the Superdome the Silverdome a few minutes ago. Austin asks the crowd if they want to see him kick Hulk Hogan's ass, and they answer in the affirmative. Austin has seen everything that Hogan has done, and he has a lot of respect for him. Austin would like to stay out here and flap his gums with Hogan, but tonight is the night for today's stars to come out here and put everything they've got on the line. And always remember, Austin 3:16 says I just whopped your ass… IF YOU SMELL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKIN'! THE ROCK IS HERE! Rock climbs into the ring and shakes hands with Hogan and Austin. "Rocky! Rocky! Rocky!" "This is awesome! This is awesome! This is awesome!" Rick says that it's a true WrestleMania moment when all five of your senses are on five. You can see it. You can hear it. You can feel it. You can taste it. And you can sure as hell smell it. Because FINALLY, the Rock has come back to WrestleMania! Rock takes his own jab at Hogan for the Silverdome incident a bit earlier. When Rock looks across the ring, he sees his good buddy Steve Austin and his childhood hero Hulk Hogan. And he sees the two biggest names in the history of WWE. Tonight a man comes out here to fight for hustle, loyalty, and respect, but he never would have done that if a man hadn't come out thirty years earlier to say his prayers and take his vitamins. Tonight, a man comes out here to fight the Authority, but he never would have done that if a man hadn't come out here and whooped his boss' candy ass. The world is lookin', if you smell what the Rock is cookin'! And that's the bottom line, cause Stone Cold says so! And whacha gonna to when Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, and the Rock run wild on you, brother?
