WWE: De La Hoya turns down Wrestlemania offer

To follow up on the story I covered yesterday, World Wrestling Entertainment officials did in fact reach out to boxing legend Oscar de La Hoya about taking part in the Floyd Mayweather angle at WrestleMania. Unfortunately, De La Hoya has rejected the offer.

De La Hoya and Mayweather will be fighting again in September. Their first encounter last May drew approximately 2.5 million Pay-Per-View buys, making it the top selling PPV in history.

Mayweather was booed at RAW last night in Anaheim, California, perhaps because he was in the heart of De La Hoya country. Much like he did in his recent fights with Oscar De La Hoya and Ricky Hatton, Mayweather is expected to play a heel role heading into WrestleMania.
