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 will be taking 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:
- If Mark Henry's injury turns out to be legitimate and causes him to be unavailable for WrestleMania 29, don't expect Big Show to be taking his spot against Ryback. WWE wants Ryback to come away with a big pay per view win after a string of losses at the last few events, but they will likely look in a different direction than Big Show for his opponent. Show is currently scheduled to work with Sheamus and Randy Orton to take on the Shield.
- CM Punk still isn't scheduled for any house show events following WrestleMania 29, and now, he isn't being advertised for May's Extreme Rules pay per view either. Punk is believed to be working with several injuries, including ones to his knee and neck, and is in need of some time off in order to heal.
- Kane gave this interesting interview. He spends some time both in character and out, including his thoughts on the passing of Paul Bearer.
- Pro Wrestling Syndicate has announced that former ECW star New Jack will be retiring in April.
