10 Things You Didn't Know About WWE WrestleMania 20

What happened when it 'all began again'?

8. Randy Savage Lobbied For Return Match With Hulk Hogan

Jeff Hardy wasn't the only somewhat improbable return that was discussed for the show. 

Macho Man Randy Savage had been making headlines by lobbying for one more match with arch-rival Hulk Hogan, whom he had spent years goading. You only need to listen to Randy's 2003 rap album, Be a Man, to hear what he thought of the Hulkster at that time. 

On second thoughts, don't listen to Randy Savage's rap album. It's just not worth it, even if you're listening ironically. 

Anyway, whether the match was actually ever discussed internally is not known, but WWE's VP of Talent Relations Jim Ross did acknowledge the rumour during an appearance on the online call-in show Byte This!, stating that he wasn't interested in the bout and that they instead were focusing on the roster they had. 

Savage and Hogan did meet in 2004, almost coming to blows backstage at TNA's Victory Road pay-per-view that November.
