The story that has been going around about WrestleMania 32 being cancelled is fake, and there is no truth to it whatsoever. Still, there is a rumor going around that could be as drastic and may actually end up happening.
Many fans are said to be so unhappy over the main event match between Triple H and Roman Reigns that they are threatening to strike WrestleMania 32 and walk out, leaving the arena empty for the final bout.
Fans have made it clear that they are not fond of Roman Reigns, and it's been that way for the past two years as WWE has pushed him to the moon. They did it last year, and he ended up being demolished by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31 before Seth Rollins interfered and pinned him for the WWE Title.
This year, it seems almost a given that nothing like that will happen and that Reigns will defeat Triple H for the title.
With that being said, WWE could swerve everyone and change it up to where Triple H wins or something else big happens in the match. Many of the fans aren't expecting that, though, and Forbes states that they're willing to do something about it as well.
Alfred Konuwa of Forbes states that there are many people out there who are not happy with WWE and their decision to keep pushing Roman Reigns. They're even less pleased that the company is giving him the main event spot at WrestleMania and likely going to let him walk out with the title.
The thing is, Konuwa states that no matter how upset the fans may be about all this, they can't really complain. By constantly watching WWE and continuing to pay for the special events and such, the fans are essentially the ones paying for the push.

The problem is that WWE is going to do whatever keeps making them money as any good business in the world would do. Roman Reigns may get booed out of each building he enters and fans may be vocal about their dislike, but they are still making money off of it.
Making that money means they aren't going to change their product. It's not that they don't care for their fans, but that why fix what isn't broken?
In order to make a statement, fans need to actually do something that will affect WWE due to the product they are putting out. If they really don't want Roman Reigns to keep succeeding, then they don't need to boo, they need to strike.

Can you imagine?
What would WWE do if 50,000 people walked out of WrestleMania 32 right when the main event started? What would they do if even 25,000 people walked out? Sports Keeda is reporting that attendance and ticket sales records have already been set, and WWE could be expecting close to 100,000 people in Dallas on Sunday.
Not everyone will leave, as there will be a lot of families, kids, and casual fans there who won't know a thing about WWE politics and wouldn't dare abandon their seats.
Losing even one-fourth of the crowd during the final match of the day could be devastating for how it comes off on camera. The empty seats would be incredibly obvious, and it would be a problem that couldn't be fixed quickly.
This would be a message to WWE. This would be a way to get them to change things and make them realize that fans will do something about it.
Yes, WWE would already have the money of the fans who would strike and walk out of the main event at WrestleMania 32, and that's why more is needed. If fans really want Roman Reigns out of the spotlight, then they'd need to boycott more events and keep the opposition strong.
This Sunday, WWE is going to present WrestleMania 32 no matter what. It is set to happen, and the main event is going to be Triple H defending the WWE World Heavyweight Title against Roman Reigns in a match that many fans are against. If they don't like it, then they need to strike, walk out, or boycott and really do something about it.
