For WWE and its fans, 2015 has not been it's most memorable of years, but 2016 could prove to be quite the opposite.
With a number of retirements set to take place, as well as a whole host of new talent possibly being brought up from NXT, there is no question that next year will see a lot of change for the company.
Perhaps the most important topic on everyone's minds with reference to WWE in 2016 is that it will be the last chance the brand will have for a number of matches to take place.

Probably the most important of these potential bouts is the dream match for many - The Undertaker finally taking on Sting for the first time in wrestling history.
Those in charge at WWE will be aware more than anyone of the potential of this match, and members of the WWE Universe will be hoping the company presents it in the right way, on the right occasion, which has not been its forte of late.
2016 will undoubtedly prove the perfect time for the match to take place, with The Undertaker and Sting reaching the ages of 51 and 57, respectively.
As WrestleMania 32 will also be taking place in The Undertaker's home state of Texas in April of next year, it could well prove the ideal setting for this clash to take place.
Another potential WWE match which could take place next year could well be the solution to the company's problems with regard to its Diva's Division.
A clash which sees the return of a female WWE legend such as Trish Stratus or Lita, taking on a younger more inexperienced Diva from the current roster would surely be a hit with the WWE Universe.
One of the more dominant Divas at present, such as Nikki Bella or Paige, would prove to be the ideal opponent for Stratus or Lita, who would surely cut an excellent promo about what it takes to be a successful female WWE superstar.
Another women's match which should take place in 2016 would be following the events of last year's exchange between Ronda Rousey and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania 31.
Although she recently lost her undefeated streak in the UFC, Rousey is certainly a force to be reckoned with and as Stephanie is too, it would be incredible to see someone as popular as Rousey, finally stand up to her.
The hype surrounding this match would be huge and would undoubtedly work wonders, much in the way of the previously mentioned potential women's match, for the company's Diva's Division.
Ultimately these matches are not set in stone but they should undoubtedly be discussed for 2016 as they would give the WWE a much-needed boost following an average year in 2015.
