Rumor Roundup (Jan. 28, 2016): WrestleMania 32 main event, The Rock plans, Dean Ambrose heel turn, more!

Speculating on the rumors surrounding pro wrestling is a favored pastime of many fans, perhaps second only to actually watching the matches. In this daily column, we take a look at the latest rumors being churned out by the pro wrestling rumor mill.

Important reminder: Rumors are just that -- rumors. None of this has been confirmed as legitimate news or fact, it's just circulating around the pro wrestling rumor mill. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • The WWE thinking on booking Triple H vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE world heavyweight championship as the main event of WrestleMania 32 is apparently a coronation for Reigns proper like they couldn't at WrestleMania 31.
  • Speaking of which, don't be surprised if they go with The Rock in Reigns' corner and Vince McMahon in Triple H's corner. The expectation would be that the second time with Rock celebrating with Reigns would be the charm.
  • There's some more talk of a Dean Ambrose heel turn but it it happens it would likely be an attempt at getting Reigns over that much more as a babyface. It would likely be a title program.
  • Nikki Bella's neck surgery will be a storyline on Total Divas in the future.
  • Apparently WWE is high on Matt Riddle and he's just going through the motions learning the industry with EVOLVE before making his way to NXT and then the main roster.
