The Grapevine (3/7/16): Return of the Hardcore Legend



Good morning, and this is your daily Grapevine! This is where we round up the most interesting rumors and news happening in the wild world of wrestling that you may have missed over the weekend.

We're a little under a month away from WrestleMania, and the card's taking shape (whether you believe everything or not):



  • Mick Foley is about to show up on RAW to set up a WrestleMania match. It might not be this week's episode and he certainly isn't wrestling, but he will be doing an angle. As for what it is exactly, nobody has any news yet. (Source: WrestlingInc)

We say: What could this possibly be? A match involving the Dudleys? We can't think of any angles right now that would the Hardcore Legend would serve well, but it's up to them to figure it out.


  • Sami Zayn is booked for Roadblock to possibly set up a match against Kevin Owens. It was previously reported that Kevin Owens might be figuring in a multi-man match for the Intercontinental Championship, but plans are still apparently up in the air. (Source: WrestlingInc)

We say: If you want to avoid a dirtsheet-induced headache, best to stop following any sort of WrestleMania rumors. That said, if you're still here after reading that, we don't know what to tell you other than Sami Zayn is wrestling at Mania, one way or another. Exactly how he'll get there, it's probably best to let unfold.


  • There's been rumors lately of a second Divas match at WrestleMania, and now it seems to be involving Brie Bella and Paige. WWE seamstress Julie Youngberg tweeted that she's "brainstorming" with the two, as well as Becky Lynch, who is now confirmed to be facing Charlotte and Sasha Banks in a triple threat for the Divas Championship. As of last Monday's RAW, it seemed as though Brie was heading into a program with Lana. (Source: WrestlingInc)

We say: Brie vs. Paige seems way more palatable than Brie vs. Lana. Does this mean Paige is returning as a heel (after spending time as a face)? Only one way to find out.

What do you think? Where do you figure Mick Foley is fitting at Mania? What match do you want to see Sami Zayn in? Let us know what you think in the comments!
