WWE legends Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley to appear at WrestleMania 32

Football News

WrestleMania 32 is just a matter of weeks away now and the WWE are desperately trying to make it the biggest event of it's kind ever, by piling over 100,000 people into the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

However, tickets for 'Mania have apparently been struggling to sell thanks to a combination of a completely uninteresting main event between Triple H and the bland Roman Reigns and a spate of injuries to top tier guys leaving the likes of John Cena, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton and more all out of action.

Legends Returning

Another problem has been a host of WWE legends refusing to make a once-in-a-lifetime comeback to the company in order to boost sales. However, that trend has been bucked today with the news that both Mick Foley and Shawn Michaels will be appearing on the 'Grandest Stage of Them All.'

According to a report in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, HBK and Foley will be joining The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin in making special occasions for the big event.

Unfortunately, none of the legends mentioned will be actually wrestling during 'Mania, instead they will be making cameo appearances, interview roles, or as special guest referees.

3 Main Events

The card for 'Mania is very close to being set, with the three real main events already being set in stone. Shane McMahon will face The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell for the rights to Monday Night Raw.

Roman Reigns is facing Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship after winning a number one contenders match at FastLane.

Finally, the two other contestants from that triple-threat match, Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar, are going up against each other in a No Holds Barred Street Fight.

It's an interesting tactic from the WWE, with four faces going head-to-head in the McMahon-Taker and Lesnar-Ambrose bouts, while Triple H and Roman Reigns will both likely be booed in the main event, thanks to Reigns' complete inability to get over with the crowd in any way whatsoever.

Over in the Divas division, it looks like Charlotte will be defending her Championship in a triple threat match against Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch.

Still to be Decided

There are still three world title fights that are yet to be decided yet, with no real feuds being set up in any of them.

Kalisto still hold the United States belt after beating Alberto Del Rio in the FastLane pre-show. The high-flying luchadore has no real opponent so the most likely situation is him facing Del Rio again to finally end their feud.

The New Day have no real challengers for the tag team titles. Chris Jericho and AJ Styles have teamed up in recent weeks and might actually be number one contenders, but the Champions could face the League of Nations, for some weird reason after WWE seemingly decided to hold off on Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady's main roster debut.

That leaves us with Kevin Owens, the Intercontinental Champion. Honestly, who knows what the creative team has for him. Unless Sami Zayn is getting a promotion to the main roster - as is being reported - there'll probably be a 6-man ladder or some rubbish.

Ah well, at least we're getting Michaels and Foley. That's a reason to be cheerful!
