Rumor Roundup for Wednesday, March 26

Who will induct "the hardcore legend" into the hall of fame? - WikiMedia Commons

Update on who will induct Mick Foley into the Hall of Fame, review of other inductors, character change coming for Cena? More inside...

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:

  • Mick Foley announced, via his son's Youtube channel, that he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Terry Funk.
  • For a quick recap of the expected Hall of Fame inductors: Officially, Funk will be inducting Foley. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be inducting Bruno Sammartino. Unofficially, but expected, are Lita to induct Trish Stratus, Stevie Ray to induct Booker T, and Maria Menounos to induct Bob Backlund.
  • It is possible we'll see an "edgier" John Cena following his expected WWE title win over the Rock at WrestleMania 29? It wouldn't be the long-awaited (at least amongst the smark community) heel turn, but more in line with what we saw out of him in the final segment of Monday's (Mar. 25) Raw. As with most things regarding Cena making a change from his cartoonish, "Superman," kid-friendly character, it's probably better to wait and see rather than getting your hopes up.
  • It looks like plans are solidifying to have a Kaitlyn vs. AJ Lee Diva's Title match at WrestleMania 29. There has been a revolving door of ideas for the Divas at the event, with past plans for a Layla heel turn and 8-woman tag match all being scrapped.
