Before anyone even realizes it, WrestleMania 32 is going to be here and the world is going to be watching the biggest wrestling event of the year. As of now, there are only three matches confirmed and in place for the card, but more are rumored and likely coming soon. WWE wants to make the Dallas card one of the biggest of all time, and one way to surely get attention is to have as many big names come in as possible, and that means getting the legends.
It’s already confirmed that The Rock is going to appear at WrestleMania 32. No-one quite knows what he is going to do, but there are a few rumors going around right now. He could end up as a host, or just do a segment or get involved in whatever match The Usos have on the card.
Another possible option is that he may have a part in the main event, pitting Roman Reigns against Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Title. He may be in Reigns’ corner, or he could somehow involve himself (special guest referee) in one way or another.
Yes, he’s a huge star, but WWE could be bringing in other legends for WrestleMania 32, as well.
According to Cageside Seats, there are at least four other legends who could be appearing at WrestleMania 32 and are actually scheduled to appear — among whom are Mick Foley, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
Mick Foley appearing is quite a bit of new information, and it’s going to be interesting to see what he may end up doing. It will likely also only be a segment, but it is surely going to be a fun one. Don’t forget that he’s also doing his “WrestleMania 32 Dream Vacation Raffle” again this year, and you could win.
It’s been known for quite some time that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was going to be at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas. Apparently, he had tossed around a huge idea for his appearance to WWE, but it got shot down. Now, that idea could have come back around by this time, but that remains to be seen.
For years, many fans thought that Austin was going to end up wrestling on this card with it being in Texas and all. That’s not going to happen, and it is about 99 percent confirmed that Austin will never wrestle again.
Ric Flair is now being promoted as being at WrestleMania 32, but that should not come as much of a surprise at all. He’s been accompanying his daughter, Charlotte, to the ring for a while now, and will do the same at the PPV as she faces off with either Sasha Banks or Becky Lynch.
Another interesting name now being thrown around is that of Shawn Michaels.
In April of last year, Michaels had appeared on The Ross Report to talk about a number of things, and that is when he revealed that WWE asked him to wrestle at WrestleMania 32. He wasn’t really keen on the idea.
“It wouldn’t be a great fit for me. There’d be a lot of stifling going on. I’ve been able to sway them on things other people couldn’t. I’d be open to the Pat Patterson gig, where you have a couple of projects and you could write in from home about it. If you’re going to be there every week, you might as well go back and be an on-air character and make more money.”
That was already set in stone. In November, someone again presented the question to Michaels about wrestling at the huge event. He answered it quite simply.

So, WWE will now have at least five huge and legendary names at WrestleMania 32. That’s not even mentioning the fact that Shane McMahon has returned and is going to be taking on The Undertaker inside the unfriendly confines of Hell in a Cell.
With a little over a month until WrestleMania 32, it’s always possible that other big names and wrestling legends could be added. The rumor of Hulk Hogan returning to WWE keeps swirling around, but nothing is concrete yet. At least for now, fans will get The Rock, Mick Foley, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin when April 3 arrives in Texas.
