There’s been a lot of back and forth over which match will close WrestleMania 32 on Sunday in Dallas.
The current plan, as of yesterday and this could change, has the Hell In a Cell match with Shane McMahon and The Undertaker closing the show, according to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio.
Many thought the WWE World Heavyweight Title match with Roman Reigns and Triple H would close the show because of Stephanie McMahon’s RAW promo but that’s not the current plan.

We noted before that the current plan is for Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker inside Hell In a Cell to close Sunday’s WWE WrestleMania 32 pay-per-view. F4Wonline.com reports that a major stunt was being worked on and practice yesterday afternoon. Speculation is that this could be for that match.
While I believe being the old school and professional as he is, Taker would want the World Title match to close the show, the HIAC would be just as fitting a closer. It may hint at the result of the match, but would still be unpredictable. On one hand, WM’s in Texas. Taker’s in a high profile unpredictable match at WM. Either WWE wants Taker closing WM for what could be his last match or want to send the fans homw happy by having their home state Deadman close out the show on a win.
Take it though as a rumor because even if it’s true that it’s the current plan, plans can change. WWE often changes their plans a billion times before the show airs and even during the show before it ends. However, HIAC closing WM would not be the first WM where the World Title match did not close WM. WM8 closed with Hogan vs Sid while the Savage/Flair World Title match was somewhere in the middle. If I remember correctly, WM11 closed with LT vs Bam Bam Bigelow. WM26 closed with Taker vs HBK II which served to (so far) be HBK’s last match.
