Yesterday, my colleague Bill Hanstock clued us into what Vince McMahon is thinking for Undertaker's possible WrestleMania 32 opponents now that he's decided to fast-forward the Brock Lesnar program.
As part of that, we also learned more about what WWE has planned for a quick but important swing through Mexico for the week before Hell in a Cell, when Taker and Brock will presumably end their feud in the structure that gives that pay-per-view (PPV) its name. As he did when he stuck around to work with The Shield boys after Mania 29, The Dead Man will be partnering back up with kayfabe brother Kane, this time to take on the acolytes of his opponent at WM 31, Luke Harper & Braun Strowman.
It may be that this will be a test run for Strowman to determine if he's deserving of the rub of working with The Phenom in Arlington, Texas next Spring.
There's also a flier making the rounds that claims to be promoting the company's three shows (October 16 in Merida, 17 in Mexico City and 18 in Monterrey). In addition to the Brothers of Destruction vs. The Wyatts headliner, it also promises more of Roman Reigns vs. Bray and the muy fresco match-up of Randy Orton vs. Sheamus:

But, hey, don't sleep on that El Torito vs. Los Matadores showdown!
My dreams of one of these shows becoming a Network special a la Beast in the East were dashed when the October 3 Madison Square Garden show was announced, but if rumors of Vince panicking about low ratings are true, maybe we'll see Taker & Kane pair up on October 19's Raw.
This is a show WWE deems important enough to pull out all the stops, including getting Ric Flair & Chris Jericho down there.
Does WWE's Mexico line-up sound enticing to you, Cagesiders?
