With WrestleMania 32 kicking off next year, various rumors and predictions have been surfacing on the web. In the sections below, we will explore the latest updates so far. WrestleMania 32 will be held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on April 3, 2016.
Ronda Rousey Rumored for WrestleMania 32
WWE big-wig Stephanie McMahon tweeted a message, after meeting up with friend and UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.
"At the #ESPYS @ESPN and look who I ran into! #UFC Champion @RondaRousey! Up 4 #BestFemaleAthlete! #WrestleMania?" McMahon teased during the ESPYs, which was held on Wednesday evening. This posting in no way confirms whether Rousey will show up to WrestleMania 32.
However, Rousey did show up at WrestleMania 31 in March, where she and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson tossed McMahon and Triple H out of the ring. It was implied that there will be a rematch sometime in the future. Naturally, this was all part of the act.
Such WrestleMania rumors troubled the establishment at UFC, whose president Dana White insisted that Rousey is done with WWE.
"What she did at WrestleMania was awesome. It came off great, I loved it. She's a one-and-done," White told TheFightNetwork back in April.
It is still way too early to say for sure whether Rousey will participate in WrestleMania 32.
Undertaker May Return, but for One Last Time
The aging wrestler now shows up once a year, and only at WrestleMania events. Still, there are rumors that the Undertaker might make another appearance at WrestleMania 32.
This latest report comes straight from WrestleZone, which interviewed a fan who saw the official WrestleMania 32 trailer during RAW on Monday. Apparently, the video featured Undertaker's signature gong noise. The alleged witness also claimed that he saw a close-up of Undertaker.
In the meantime, there is speculation that the iconic wrestler will retire after WrestleMania 32. The sentiment was shared by former WWE commentator Jim Ross.
"I see Taker perhaps having one more match this year and calling it a career at Wrestlemania Texas," Ross wrote in the Q&A section of his website JrsBarBq.com.
Will Stone Cold Face Off with Brock Lesnar?
Recently, Inquistr predicted that Stone Cold Steve Austin might battle Brock Lesnar in the ring at WrestleMania 32. The publication got its information from a podcast between Stone Cold and Paul Heyman.
During that conversation, Heyman asked if Austin wanted to fight Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 32. The wrestler said he would beat Lesnar if he wanted to. However, Austin quickly backtracks by saying, "I'm not saying I'm going to, but I think you know how this will go down."
Apparently not satisfied, Heyman eggs Austin on by implying the revenue potential for a match between The Texas Rattlesnake and The Beast Incarnate in Austin's home state of Texas. Stone Cold then insists that Brock has the most to lose if such match took place.
Heyman already has a reputation for raising unsubstantiated hype. While speculation is fun, it is still important to exercise some degree of caution in regards to rumors.
