As previously reported, Brie Bella was expected to officially retire from WWE sometime this coming summer in order to spend more time with her husband, former WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan; however, a report from ProWrestlingSheet.com is indicating that those plans have now apparently changed.
The latest update is that Brie will reportedly retire on the post-WrestleMania 32 edition of Raw due to an undisclosed health issue that Bryan is now said to be currently dealing with. This health issue is now reported to be the reason as to why Bryan has been pulled from all upcoming WWE live events, including WrestleMania Axxess. Furthermore, the report states that Bryan’s health issue is also the reason why Brie was absent from this week’s editions of Raw and SmackDown.
It is also being reported that once Brie retires, she will remain in an ambassador-type role for WWE and will still appear on the company’s “Total Divas” television show.
On which match will close WrestleMania 32:
I see the WWE Title bout closing WMTexas and nothing else. I’d place the HIAC bout in the middle to latter part of the show follow it with one or two matches and then close with the WWE Title bout. To not close with the WWE Title lessens the championship in my opinion and that should never be allowed to happen.
On big stars appearing at the event:
Seems like no brainer booking to feature Steve Austin, The Rock and John Cena in the ring together at ‘Mania in an entertaining piece of business. The fans would love it and creative type should never avoid an automatic “pop.” This might be a helluva way to kickoff the main show. Much like WM30 in NOLA.
On which match should start WrestleMania 32:
My suggestion would be to start the wrestling aspect of the main broadcast of WMTexas with the IC Title Ladder match and if the seven men in that match are fortunate that’s what will happen. Go steal the show while the audience is hot and eagerly anticipating the thrill show presentation.
