After last night’s WWE TLC pay-per-view we unveiled preliminary plans for a program between Triple H and Roman Reigns for Wrestlemania 32. That information was originally included for this post, however, we ran with it early because of how the pay-per-view ended. In addition to that, here’s what else we are hearing.
WWE is operating under the assumption that Seth Rollins and Sting will not be available but that Randy Orton will be. They don’t have Orton figured in for one of the biggest matches though, so if he's not ready in time, it's not the end of the world.
The Rock isn’t a definite no but WWE believes he won’t be available. They’ve also all but given up on trying to change Steve Austin’s mind.
Bill Goldberg and Kurt Angle have both been in touch with the company, trying to push for a match against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 32 next year. WWE does have interest in Goldberg and WWE knowing TNA wants Goldberg bad has made them more interested. However, Goldberg vs. Lesnar isn’t where they’re leaning with Brock even if they get him. Angle seems like a long shot for the same reasons WWE has always hesitated to bring him back.
Knowing all of this, the matches that were WRITTEN IN PENCIL as of last week were as follows:
- John Cena vs. The Undertaker
- Bray Wyatt vs. Brock Lesnar (it’s what we’ve been told)
- Triple H vs. Roman Reigns
Again, I’ll stress these are written in pencil, but these are the latest plans from our best internal source. Given what happened last night at TLC, they appear to be very accurate, at least for now.
