Four names have been thrown in the hat as possible WrestleMania 32 opponents for Brock Lesnar next year.
According to NoDQ, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin are four possible opponents for The Beast Incarnate at the biggest wrestling show of them all next April.
All of these opponents for Lesnar would all create exciting matches to watch, but some of the possible clashes have more logic behind them than others.

Reigns is said to be the most likely opponent for Lesnar. Rumors have suggested the former Shield member will be given a run towards, or a run with, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship during WrestleMania season. He could win or defend the top prize against The Beast in this period.
As for Rollins, the two have already feuded quite a few times in the past year, ever since Rollins won the Money in the Bank contract last year, and also when he won the championship itself at the last WrestleMania.
The idea for this match, according to NoDQ, would be for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship again, but that would only take place if Rollins is still the owner of the title.
Speculation of The Rock against Lesnar has been making its rounds for many years now. The Great One was scheduled to go up against The Beast Incarnate at WrestleMania 30, but those plans were scrapped when he got injured at the previous WrestleMania against John Cena. We all know who Lesnar went up against instead that year!
And finally, Stone Cold Steve Austin. This has been making some rounds too recently, especially after The Texas Rattlesnake teased the possibility during his podcast on the WWE Network with Paul Heyman. However, he has denied the chances of this happening several times.
Rock always wins
Any one of these opponents should provide a great match for Lesnar. I think the match with the realistic chances of happening would have to be the match against The Rock. Not only is this match a potential headliner, but it also has so many possible storyline angles.
Lesnar and Reigns could have a Number One Contenders' match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. The former Shield member could be on the ropes and about to lose to The Beast when The Rock comes out and helps his cousin win the match. Lesnar says afterward The Rock cost him a chance at the championship and hence the feud begins.
To add more credibility to the character of Roman Reigns, he is better off winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against John Cena. Cena has been at the top of the WWE food chain for a long time and having Reigns beat him at WrestleMania for the top prize would solidify his place as the new top dog.
