Speculating on the rumors surrounding pro wrestling is a favored pastime of many fans, perhaps second only to actually watching the matches. In this daily column, we take a look at the latest rumors being churned out by the pro wrestling rumor mill.
Important reminder: Rumors are just that -- rumors. None of this has been confirmed as legitimate news or fact; so remember to take it all with a grain of salt.
Rumors for the Day:
- It's another slow day when it comes to rumors, as always seems to be the case when WWE is touring overseas. Whatever insider(s) it is that leaks out the juicier rumors must not have the opportunity when WWE is out of the country.
- Speaking of the European tour, it looks like the Miz is still working as a heel against Kofi Kingston. Show reports indicate that Miz comes out as a face only to turn heel with vicious tactics during the match.
- The 200th episode of NXT will be taped on November 21 and two big matches have been announced. First, Antonio Cesaro will make an appearance to take on William Regal. It's unusual to see a main roster superstar in Cesaro taking on the semi-retired Regal, but it should be a quality match. Also, Bo Dallas will defend his NXT title against Adrian Neville.
- As WWE continues to make their way through a tour of Europe, officials are also using the opportunity to check out some of the local talent. Most notably, they held tryouts for three prominent members of the New European Championship Wrestlering promotion: current heavyweight champion Adrian Severe (trained by Alex Wright of WCW fame,) current hardcore champion "the Arabian Star," and V.I.P.
