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:
(Due to some technical difficulties, no "top story" rumor for today.)
- Recent rumors for the locations of future WrestleMania events (31, 32, etc.) have pegged Orlando, FL (the possible site of a physical WWE Hall of Fame) and Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, TX as possible locations. Another option that WWE is rumored to be looking into is bringing WrestleMania back to Canada. WrestleMania X8 was the last to take place in Canada.
- With so many returning stars (Undertaker, Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Rock,) there has been at least some talk about getting those guys into matches on free TV in order to enhance the build to WrestleMania 29 and to knock off some ring rust. Since he is backstage at every show anyway, Triple H is believed to be the most likely to appear of the group.
- The name of this year's previously unnamed June WWE pay-per-view (PPV) will be WWE Payback. The nature of the PPV, what it's concept may be -- if it has one, is yet to be revealed. That show will take place on June 16.
- Christian may not be returning to the ring until after WrestleMania 29. He has been medically cleared to return to action, but is currently dead in the water from a creative perspective. Christian is considered a "steady hand" by WWE, in that he can put on quality matches in whatever situation he is needed, and will likely be used to help boost developing stars throughout the summer.
- Former WWE/WCW superstar Sid Vicious was hospitalized this week with a heart issue. The exact nature of his condition has not been reported.
- Former TNA knockout Rosita (real name Thea Trinidad,) had a tryout with WWE recently and was backstage at at last night's (March 4) Raw.
