WrestleMania 32 The WWE's marquee event is live on April 3rd, 2016 and many WWE faithful are thus far reserving judgement as has been the case in recent years.
Once again we are faced with some questionable booking and yes... Another Main Event featuring Roman Reigns. Since the 2015 WrestleMania the WWE has been devastated by injuries and I think it's fair to say the WWE weather the storm as best as it could have.
In response to declining ratings we seen Vince return to TV. Kalisto win the US Title. Triple H return to the ring and become WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Some wars between Brock and The Undertaker. Roman Reigns continues to headline in spite of the fans and the continued rise of Dean Ambrose. The Divas Revolution which is on it's last legs as groups have fractured. While Raw hasn't gotten much new blood outside of AJ Styles and the return of Sami Zayn we've also seen the cupboards continue to be loaded in NXT.
So reality is our options were always going to be limited with NXT graduations coming much slower than many have hoped in spite of the mass injuries to the main roster.
A quick look and break down of the main card with the list via Wikipedia
Andre "The Giant" Memorial Battle Royal is a throw in with little to no implications going forward but an over the top rope elimination is always worth a watch. While all the entrants are yet to be finalized I'm putting my money on Tyler Breeze to win it for the trophy selfie opportunities.
The Uso's vs The Dudley Boys - Flip a coin and the winner is... It doesn't matter! You can build it for two months but there are no implications here. A title shot? Even if The New Day loses to the League of Nations the tag titles will be tied up another month at least.
7- man Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Championship - This one has Zayn/Owens written all over it. The two could cancel out which opens the door for Ziggler but the rest are fillers to take some bumps.
Charlotte vs Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks - You have to think Lynch or Banks walk out of AT&T Stadium. There are too many Divas struggling to stay relevant at the moment and Charlotte has been underwhelming as champion.

Kalisto vs Ryback - I'm happy to see Ryback trying to make changes but it's still not enough. Frankly he needs a win here. Losing to Kalisto pretty much cements him as a career jobber.
WWE Tag Team Championships
The New Day vs The League of Nations - The beating they put on the New Day was impressive and cringe-worthy. Now lets see if they can follow it up otherwise I don't see a team on the main roster who can unseat the New Day hype train.

Shane McMahon Vs The Undertaker - This one is going to be crazy one way or another. Shane will fly. Taker will do tons of damage. This match guaranteed will be decided by outside interference and it could be a wild one regardless. Big implications either way. I'm going with the Undertaker on the basis that losing to Lesnar is one thing... dropping another Mania match only hurts the Deadman's legacy.

Dean Ambrose vs Brock Lesnar - This is my pick for match of the night. This will be must see WWE. It's going to be brutal to watch and I guarantee an instant classic. Winner - Brock Lesnar. We've seen Ambrose get destroyed by Lesnar a few times and I don't think weapons are going to be enough to even this one up. Expect Lesnar to set his sights on Reigns or Triple H next

WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Triple H vs Roman Reigns - I'll pick this as the match that has the most potential to be a bust. Damned if you do damned if you don't in this case. Triple H walking out champ must line up a title match with Lesnar. Roman Reigns as Champ will lead to deafening boos and me personally turning off my tv in disgust. Frankly it's Triple H or bust here. A third title for Reigns does nothing to put him over and that's the entire reason Triple H is back to active duty.
In conclusion - This whole night could be hit and miss. Everyone brings their A game but they're really going to need a few A+ performances to live up to the WrestleMania name. The Hell In A Cell match must bring intrigue and blow away expectations in order for this event to considered a success rather than average at best.
