WWE WrestleMania 32 Rumors and Latest News

It is never too early to start the WrestleMania 32 speculation and a recent article in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has provoked many prognostications. A new report indicates that Vince McMahon has penciled in his top Mania matches yet the substance of those bookings remain a bit of a mystery.

It is never too early to start the WrestleMania 32 speculation and a recent article in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has provoked many prognostications. Dave Meltzer reports that Vince McMahon has penciled in his top Mania matches yet the substance of those bookings remain a bit of a mystery.

According to Meltzer, Vince is going with six big matches. If you look at the WrestleMania 31 card, you’d find five big matches so this is an interesting development. I say interesting because where is the talent pool coming from to fill that extra spot? If you take Daniel Bryan out of the equation as reported, you would need a few guys to get hot or come in and fill those gaps who aren’t already there. I would almost be hard pressed to find four big matches out of the current lineup as opposed to six.

The Undertaker vs. Sting topic never gets old does it? For the last four years, the match has been predicted, reported, and discussed continuously throughout the Mania cycle. Yet here we are with both men under contract and we are no closer to getting that match today than we were when Sting was in TNA. If the boss doesn’t want it, the boss isn’t going to give it.

I wouldn’t call the match dead regardless of the report. Vince has been known to change his mind when he senses a strong fan reaction in the opposite direction. If for some reason the fans can create a buzz for this match between now and January, maybe Vince changes his mind. I really don’t see what you could do with either guy outside of a match against each other that would give him as much bang for his buck.

I am still a bit stunned that the boss is planning on going with Rock vs. Triple H. I just don’t see the appeal in 2015, although I suppose just seeing Rock wrestle is enough. I don’t think anyone would disagree that Brock vs. Rock is the way to go. That said, with the injuries Rock has sustained in his last few matches, I could see the appeal of working with Hunter over a physical match with Brock.

Vince is either incredibly naïve or the most confident negotiator in the world if he thinks he is booking Ronda Rousey on WrestleMania. UFC president Dana White has emphatically said that Rousey is done with the WWE. Maybe there is a deal to be made but even Rousey has conceded in recent interviews that her return to the WWE will likely be delayed for a while. I am not saying it’s a bad idea. I just think he has a better chance of booking Stone Cold Steve Austin at this point.

So what do you do with Brock Lesnar and John Cena? I suppose you could go with Cena vs. Undertaker or even Sting for that matter. Cena has been set up against young guys in recent years so it may even be a guy who isn’t even on the main roster yet. As for Lesnar, I would have said Rusev before the writing team started to squash him post-Mania. Dave Batista would be an interesting journeyman opponent for Brock. Another idea I have heard floated around quite a bit is a Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar rematch which isn’t the worst way to use Brock.

Regardless, we may be closer to SummerSlam but all of the buzz is around WrestleMania 32. It will only get bigger from here.
