WrestleMania 32 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas is literally just over two weeks away, and the match card for that night is quickly filling up.

Four more matches for The Showcase of The Immortals were announced in the past week, but one match - or should we say one championship match - is still missing from the prestigious event.

As of writing, Kevin Owens still has not been booked in a fight to defend his Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania, and it is the only title that doesn't have a match on the card.

However, the Wrestling Observer, via Cageside Seats, is still reporting the rumor that has been going around for a while, that Owens will be defending his title in a multi-man match at the event, and also the only sure-fire participant in that match alongside the current champion is Sami Zayn.

The report said: "The Observer is still reporting the plan for Kevin Owens is a multiple person match at WrestleMania 32 and Sami Zayn is the only participant who is "locked in." Apparently Neville was also scheduled for it before his injury and Dolph Ziggler & The Miz were also set for it at one point but that may have changed."

Owens has already won a multi-man match for the Intercontinental Championship this year. It was a fatal five-way match against Tyler Breeze, Dolph Ziggler, Stardust, and the previous champion Dean Ambrose on the February 15 episode of Monday Night Raw.

The rumored multi-man match at WrestleMania however, would probably blow the Raw fatal five-way out of the water, as the speculated participants can create better storylines with Owens.

If Neville wasn't injured, he would be using this match to go one over the Intercontinental Champion by taking the title away from him, just like how he won the Slammy Award for Breakout Star of the Year at the back end of last year much to the surprise of Owens. It's a shame this can no longer take place due to the fact the British superstar is expected to be out until the summer.

For Ziggler and The Miz, they are two of the most hard working stars on the roster and have always been in or around the Intercontinental title picture. Dolph recently had a match for the championship against Owens at Fastlane. The Miz has recently had one-on-one matches with The Showoff and Zayn on Raw and SmackDown, as well as tagging with Owens.

For Zayn, it's a chance to get revenge for what Owens did to him during their clash in NXT, that caused him to be sidelined with injury for many months.

He's already made clear that he is back on the main roster to continue his rivalry with the Intercontinental Champion. This feud has the potential to go beyond WrestleMania so don't be surprised if it's Zayn that walks out with the title at The Showcase of The Immortals.
