Rumor Roundup (Mar. 4, 2014): CM Punk WWE update, Plans for Daniel Bryan, Undertaker, and More!

Could Daniel Bryan be going the Bret Hart route at WrestleMania XXX?

Today's rumors: No CM Punk on Raw, idea pitched for Bryan at WrestleMania XXX, Sheamus injured, Undertaker added to shows, and more!

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:

  • Raw from Chicago, IL came and went last night with no sign of CM Punk. I'll avoid the obvious pun available here, but WWE pulled a fast one on just about everybody. Most people will hide behind their use of "probably" or "possibly" to describe the situation, but it seemed like everyone was expecting it to happen. It was just too perfect to get us out of an awful WrestleMania XXX title match, but it didn't come to fruition. What happens from here is anyone's guess, but since Punk wasn't back in the most obvious place for him last night, it seems unlikely that he'll be back at all anytime soon.
  • There has been at least some discussion towards putting Daniel Bryan into a similar situation at WrestleMania XXX to Bret Hart at WrestleMania X, with Bryan having a match early in the show against Triple H before moving into the main event title match against Batista and Randy Orton. Right now though, it seems as though it was a creative meeting room idea only.
  • Sheamus suffered a laceration to his left forearm following his backstage brawl with Christian on Raw. He is not expected to miss any time.
  • The Undertaker has been added to two more upcoming Raw shows in Brooklyn, NY, and the "go home" show before WrestleMania XXX in Washington D.C.
  • Those of you with the WWE Network will be happy to hear that WWE is said to be still working towards getting every old Raw and Nitro available on the Network. As of right now, it doesn't seem likely to happen before WrestleMania XXX but it does appear to be on its way.
