In brief: No
There is no proven correlation between wisdom tooth eruption and crowding of the other teeth.
This used to be a common misconception, but has since been rejected by orthodontics. It is still best to have the wisdom tooth removed because there is often not enough room for them to fully erupt, you can't clean them, they will decay and cause pain.

In brief: No
Wisdom teeth grow in at about the same time front teeth want to become crooked, so the wisdom teeth take the blame.
They actually only contribute about 10% to the reasons that front teeth want to crowd. At 32 you wisdom teeth should have erupted a decade ago. Please have them examined by an oral surgeon.
