WWE have got the WrestleMania 32 card wrong

Football News

When it comes to WWE and booking matches for a pay-per-view event, they rarely make a catastrophic error with the WrestleMania card.

With it being the biggest night on the professional wrestling calendar, it would be a huge mistake were Vince McMahon and his staff to book questionable matches on such an occasion.

Although those in charge of WWE have got it right ahead of WrestleMania 32, which takes place on April 3 at the AT&T Stadium in Texas, there are some rumoured bouts which are certainly unexpected matches.

Intercontinental Championship

Following his match with Neville during this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, current Intercontinental Championship title holder Kevin Owens, fell victim to a beat down by his NXT-enemy; Sami Zayn.

These two WWE superstars have a rivalry which has captured so many members of both the NXT and WWE audiences, meaning it is surely worth a spot on the WrestleMania 32 card.

Unfortunately, however, WWE have yet again decided to confuse their fans as instead of choosing the obvious bout of an Owens vs Zayn Intercontinental Championship Title match, they are rumoured to have opted for a ladder match, instead.

Ladder Match?

As Wrestle Zone has reported, Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio revealed that Kevin Owens is expected to be defending his Title on the night in a ladder match which is set to include Sami Zayn and The Miz.

Whilst this still means members of the WWE Universe will be seeing Owens face Zayn in a match at WrestleMania 32, it will not be the singles match booking many had hoped for.

United States Championship

In addition, another speculated Title match for WrestleMania 32 is that of Kalisto defending his United States Championship.

Given Kalisto's incredible in-ring ability, including his enviable style when the stipulation involves a ladder, it is this Title which should be contested for in a ladder match on The Grandest Stage Of Them All, this year. 

Instead, as Wrestle Zone also revealed, Kalisto is set to be facing Ryback for the United States Title in a match which will surely be seen as a wasted opportunity.

Since the start of 2016, WWE seemed to have got back on track in relation to pleasing their fans and booking the right matches in the most beneficial way for its wrestlers and story lines.

With this in mind, the company should be focused on maintaining this standard for WrestleMania 32, not least because it is the biggest pay-per-view event across the whole of professional wrestling.

Members of the WWE Universe can only hope therefore, as unlikely as it seems, that WWE make a last-minute change to their bookings for the event and produce a card which has seemingly already written itself.
