It seems as if WrestleMania 32 is finally getting its card together with just about two months to go until the big day in early April. One of the biggest question marks right now is who will face off with the “Beast Incarnate” himself – Brock Lesnar. A lot of rumors are going around about who will be fortunate, or unfortunate, enough to battle Brock Lesnar on the big stage, and here are the top five possibilities.
Right now, there are a few choices that seem feasible and possible for Lesnar’s opponent, but one isn’t actually known. It honestly seems as if WWE may be waiting until after Fastlane is over to actually determine who will face him at WrestleMania 32.
That is where the first possibility comes in.
At the Royal Rumble, Bray Wyatt had his entire family decimate Brock Lesnar and they ended up eliminating him from the match as well. Lesnar went in as one of the favorites, but The Wyatt Family teamed up together to get rid of the threat of the beast.
Honestly, Wyatt seems like the most logical and reasonable opponent for Lesnar in early April, according to PW Insider.
Rumors have swirled that The Wyatt Family is going to interfere in the triple threat main event at Fastlane and get Lesnar out of the match so he doesn’t end up winning. This will then, in turn, give Lesnar even more of an issue with Bray.
Speaking of Fastlane, here is another possibility that has to be looked at, and it’s strictly due to the triple threat match between Lesnar, Roman Reigns, and Dean Ambrose. It really does seem like Reigns and Triple H will be fighting over the WWE Title at WrestleMania, but things could change.
If Brock Lesnar ends up winning at Fastlane, then he immediately goes on to WrestleMania and is in the title match main event.
This is really the wild card in all of this, but it’s an interesting one. Styles is poised for a feud with Chris Jericho that could end up culminating at Fastlane, and he could move onto a new one for WrestleMania. If that’s the case, WWE may want to take their most popular superstar (Lesnar) and pit him against their newest and another extremely popular superstar (Styles).
While this idea is rather far-fetched, it’s not a bad idea. WWE may just want to wait to pull the trigger on this one as it’s difficult to decide who would benefit most from the win.
Here’s an interesting possibility that just sprang up this past Monday Night Raw. Ambrose came out to the ring during the opening segment involving Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman as recapped by WWE‘s website. The two went face to face, and the fans actually ate up every single second of it.
Adding to it all was the main event which saw Lesnar come out to the ring as The New Day take out Roman Reigns. That’t what was truly interesting because it left just Ambrose and Lesnar alone which ended with the “Lunatic Fringe” on the receiving end of an F-5.
Just kind of strange that even though it’s a triple threat match coming later this month, only two of the three were featured in the final moments.
At one point, this seemed to be the way that WWE was heading in, and it kind of surprised anyone and everyone. Wrestling Inc. reported that Vince McMahon was actually pushing really hard for Strowman to face Lesnar at WrestleMania 32, but the attraction for it has since died down.
One other bonus possibility is that of Kevin Owens, who is kind of without a direction of any sort right now. On top of that, Owens has publicly taunted Brock Lesnar on a number of occasions over the course of the last year, and the most recent happened less than a month ago.
If WWE is looking for a match with an insane amount of brutality, then Owens vs. Lesnar would be it.
Brock Lesnar is heading toward a triple threat match at Fastlane with a WrestleMania main event title shot on the line. Depending on what happens in that match, it will end up determining who goes on to face the “Beast Incarnate” at the biggest event of the year.
