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:
- We know for sure that one of Daniel Bryan or Triple H will be in the main event WWE World Heavyweight title match along with Randy Orton and Batista when WrestleMania XXX rolls around. Current rumors indicate that Daniel Bryan will almost certainly be there, but they would seem to conflict with other rumors that his match with Triple H will almost certainly end with Authority related interference. How do they fix that? Well, why not insert both into the title match to make it a fatal fourway? That seems to actually be the plan in place to accomplish two goals. It would allow the Bryan/Triple H match to end without a clear winner, preserving the standing of both, and it would make Bryan's path to winning the title at the end of the night even tougher. Whether Bryan actually wins the title then is anyone's guess, however...
- Speaking of WrestleMania XXX results, there has apparently been serious talk that Bray Wyatt could in fact go over John Cena in their match. While it is clear that Wyatt is being pushed as a rising, main-event level heel in the making, few believe that he'll actually defeat Cena, WWE's golden boy, at the one pay per view of the year where faces almost always go over heels in big matches. Still, Wyatt is poised for a continued push into the summer and a victory over Cena at the biggest WrestleMania to date would be a great way to kick that off.
- Bret Hart is currently touring the UK doing Q&A, and on Sunday, mentioned something interesting. He said that he believes his brother Owen will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next year. Whether he is privy to inside information or it's just his feeling wasn't made clear, but most would consider Owen's induction long overdue.
- WWE is moving around some of their pay per views this. Money in the Bank, which had been in July, will now take place in late June. Battleground, which took place last October, will now be moved to July. Though spacing them out more evenly is less critical this year with the WWE Network in place, WWE officials caught some flak last year for jamming so many together during September and October.
