WrestleMania 32 will take place on April 3 of next year, live from AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.
It will mark the WrestleMania debut of former NXT Champion Kevin Owens, barring some sort of major injury (knock on wood). While his opponent for a major event that far away remains to be seen, Owens does have one name in mind for a potential dream match.
Recently interviewed by Noelle Foley for Ringside Collectables at San Diego Comic-Con, Owens said regarding WrestleMania 32: “There’s so many [names], but I think I’d be partial to Brock Lesnar.”
“The Beast Incarnate” has been linked to several other superstars over the past few months when it comes to WrestleMania opponents, including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin – who inevitably disputed any rumors that he was going to wrestle – and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Lesnar is set to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship next Sunday at WWE “Battleground,” while Owens will go one-on-one with John Cena for the third-straight pay-per-view, only this bout will be for the WWE United States Championship.
Owens vs. Lesnar, regardless if there’s a title on-the-line, would be an IWC dream match, for sure. If it does happen somewhere down the road, it would be a testament to the faith WWE officials have in Owens’ abilities, as Lesnar won’t get between the ropes with just anyone. Then again, Kofi Kingston got a match with the former champ, so maybe there’s no criteria at all.
