Last week, it was reported that Vince McMahon was pushing for a Wrestlemania 32 match between Undertaker and Braun Strowman. It appears that may off the table for now. For starters, the Phenom was said to have not been all that interested in working with Strowman. Secondly, the internet wrestling community voiced their opinion on the match, and those words were said to have gotten back to McMahon and changed his mind.

Despite not being all that impressive in the ring or having that much character development, Braun Strowman is a big focus for WWE officials as they plan out how they want Wrestlemania 32 to unfold. Management really wants him to have a big role on the show. Some are even pushing for him to work a match against Undertaker, which is a pretty prime spot on the card. The front office might opt to protect him by doing a tag team match instead.

Rumors have surfaced that there are those within WWE that are pushing management to set up a huge match between Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania. The former is set to be a free agent soon and has already stated that he is not in a rush to return to TNA. The latter needs a top level opponent to work against because his feud with the Undertaker has ran its course.

Back when WWE decided to tap the breaks on the Bray Wyatt push, it was widely reported that management did that because they ran out of opponents for him to work with. However, that did not stop certain fans from believing that he was being punished. The fact that the front office is giving him a prime spot at Wrestlemania in a high profile match against Undertaker, that should be more than enough to eliminate that notion.

During an interview with Great North Wrestling, Dan Severn revealed the interesting reason why he opted to walk away from WWE. He stated that management approached him about an idea where he would have the numbers 666 tattooed on his forehead. Severn would then have been utilized as a disciple of the Undertaker. For religious reasons, he refused. The front office then threatened to push him down the ladder, so he left the company.

While the company would never publicly acknowledge it, WWE knows that they need to build up Bray Wyatt again because he lost some momentum when management opted to have him on the sidelines for several weeks. He really needs it if they intend on using him as an opponent for the Undertaker at Wrestlemania. Reports are surfacing that the win over Dean Ambrose last night was the start of a major push for Wyatt, which should extend until April.
