A familiar face could be returning to Lincoln Financial Field this weekend for the 40th annual WrestleMania.

WWE reached out to recently retired Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce about making an appearance at the two-night event, according to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.

WrestleMania XL will take place April 6-7 at Lincoln Financial Field, marking the first time that the event has been held at the Eagles' stadium. Philadelphia previously served as the host city for WrestleMania XV in 1999, which took place at what was then known as First Union Center.

The 36-year-old Kelce announced his retirement last month after 13 seasons in the NFL, all of which he spent with the Eagles.
