Rumor Roundup (Mar. 3, 2016): WWE Roadblock plan, Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt, Sami Zayn call up, 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:

  • Apparently WWE was originally going to book Triple H vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE world heavyweight title for the Roadblock event but instead decided to put Lesnar against Bray Wyatt.
  • As noted here, Sami Zayn is reportedly scheduled for WrestleMania 32. It is expected that will represent his main roster call up, although, like others before him, he may stick around in NXT for a while before moving up for good.
  • Dave Meltzer is reporting the multi-person match at WrestleMania is likely going to be for Kevin Owens' Intercontinental title and look a lot like last year's ladder match with a lot of good workers. Dolph Ziggler, The Miz, and, of course, Owens, are all apparently penciled in for it already.
  • Matt Riddle will be working in NXT soon, according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
  • The Observer notes there are "negotiations going on" for a New Japan video game.
