His participation has been made official following this week’s Raw, in which Heyman suggested that the winner of the Rumble face Brock for the title at WrestleMania 32. Vince was reluctant to follow through with such an idea, and instead booked Lesnar to be in the match itself.

Marc Middleton of LordsOfPain.net has also published a prospective list of contestants for the rumble, including all current champions, the entire Wyatt Family, and notable upper-midcard names such as Kevin Owens, Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus, and the recent returnee Chris Jericho.
The list in full;

  1. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns defending
  2. WWE United States Champion Kalisto
  3. WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose
  4. WWE Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston
  5. WWE Tag Team Champion Big E
  6. Xavier Woods
  7. Brock Lesnar
  8. Chris Jericho
  9. Bray Wyatt
  10. Erick Rowan
  11. Luke Harper
  12. Braun Strowman
  13. Big Show
  14. Stardust
  15. Goldust
  16. Kevin Owens
  17. Jimmy Uso
  18. Jey Uso
  19. Titus O’Neil
  20. Ryback
  21. Alberto Del Rio
  22. Sheamus
  23. Dolph Ziggler
  24. Mark Henry
  25. D-Von Dudley
  26. Bubba Ray Dudley
  27. Adam Rose
  28. Heath Slater
  29. Bo Dallas
  30. Curtis Axel
It's worth noting that all the 30 names are not set in stone and only 10 names has been officially announced. Rumble line-up is always subject to change but it looks like these Superstars will be in the match, give or take a few of the midcard talents if they have surprises planned. 

Lesnar’s involvement could give a clue as to WWE’s plans for WrestleMania 32. Should he win the match (and therefore the WWE Championship), it would make sense for him to defend the title against former champion Reigns at WrestleMania. Of course – this being the Rumble – there is a huge variety of alternative possibilities.
