There are some rumors that have been swirling for the weeks about the WWE.
Most of them have been focused on WrestleMania 32, with Vince McMahon and co. seeming desperate to make the event in Texas a sellout and the greatest 'Mania of all time.
This has led to some major matches being pitched around, with Triple H potentially facing off against The Rock, a triple threat match between all three members of The Shield, and a major clash between Brock Lesnar and Stone Cold Steve Austin. The latter of those matches looks in jeopardy.

Paul Heyman was interviewed by the Sporting News earlier this week and Lesnar's advocate tried to do his best to squash any chance of a match between Lesnar and Austin next year.
"If there was a way to make this match happen, it would have happened right after that podcast. And the answer that was pretty defined was this match ain't gonna happen," Heyman said.
People will still talk about a potential match between the two because of how much the WWE Universe wants to see it. And once the seed is planted it can be hard to get rid of.
But Stone Cold vs Lesnar looks to be dead in the water, and it is a shame for WWE fans the World over.
Talk persists because Lesnar is now set up for a match with Undertaker at Hell in a Cell, one that will represent the blowoff to their feud. That leaves his dance card open for WrestleMania.
There is also the small matter of Brock and Austin appearing on the same RAW on October 19th, with Lesnar then being Austin's guest on the Stone Cold podcast immediately after.
