We noted late last week that The Rock is no longer being considered as Brock Lesnar’s WrestleMania 32 opponent. A WrestleMania showdown between Lesnar & The Rock has been rumored for years, but has been nixed time and time again for various reasons.
Of course after what transpired at this year’s WrestleMania with The Rock, Ronda Rousey and The Authority, there had been a lot of speculation that the four of them would be involved in a mixed tag team match. That was until Ronda Rousey revealed that her movie schedule will prevent her from being part of next year’s show.
The current plan is for The Rock to face Triple H in a singles match at WrestleMania, according to Dave Meltzer on Sunday’s Wrestling Observer radio.
We’re still 6 months out and a lot can change by WrestleMania season, but the absence of names like Steve Austin, Ronda Rousey, Hulk Hogan and possibly Sting make a high-profile match featuring The Rock even more necessary for WWE to ensure WM32 is a big success.
