Two marquee WWE mega stars are currently left without a solid opponent for next year’s Wrestlemania 32. Many fans have been clamoring at the idea of Brock vs Rock 2 but those plans have not been pushed forward as of now. Some articles from other sites that have no validity were sharing possibilities of Lesnar going up agains the Texas Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin, however time and again Austin had to remind the worthless rumor starters that he is in no physical condition to compete in that match.
Austin and Brock were supposed to square off in 2002 but Stone Cold was set to be squashed and Austin was having none of that and took a sabbatical from the company.
Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker was originally scheduled for WrestleMania 32 next year but Vince McMahon decided the match would work better at next month’s Hell In a Cell pay-per-view.
The Rock is not currently scheduled to face Lesnar next year in Dallas despite rumors, there is even talk that he won’t be around for the event, according to F4Wonline.com.
We’ve noted how The Rock is not one of the possible opponents for Brock Lesnar at WWE’s WrestleMania 32 in Dallas now that Lesnar vs. The Undertaker and Lesnar vs. Steve Austin have been ruled out. This is because The Rock vs. Triple H is still penciled in for next year, according to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio.
It was noted back in April of this year, right after the big WrestleMania 31 angle with the four, that WWE wanted to go forward with the Triple H vs. Rock match and the hope was that it could go along with a Stephanie McMahon vs. Ronda Rousey singles match. There was also talk of doing a mixed tag match or if UFC wouldn’t allow Rousey to wrestle, just have her and Stephanie in the corners. Now that we know Rousey will not be doing WrestleMania 32 due to movie commitments, they’re still going forward with the Triple H vs. Rock feud, at least as of this week.
WWE aired a SmackDown segment in 2014 that was done with the idea of the two rivals facing each other at either WrestleMania 31 or 32.
The long time rivals of the early 2000’s had plenty of matches against each other but only one at Wrestlemania and that was Wrestlemania 2000 in a four corners match involving a McMahon in every corner. Vince was with The Rock, Shane with The Big Show, Linda with Cactus Jack and Stephanie with Triple H. However the entire family, minus Linda turned on The Rock to help Triple H retain his WWE Championship.
