For many fans, reading about rumors -- and trawling the sites that traffic in them -- has become as popular as watching the matches themselves. In this daily column, we take a look at the biggest rumors and weirdest stories being churned out by those pro wrestling "news" sites.
Important reminders: Rumors are "rumors" and not "news" for a reason, folks. That which has not been confirmed as legitimate news or fact will be made clear. Also, don't let these things ruin your day. It gets better. Lastly, if you want to skim and read only the rumors without surrounding information, that text is in bold.
The Bray Wyatt - John Cena program and you:
According to the dirt screens, Bray Wyatt and John Cena's feud is going to be continuing for the foreseeable future, even past the Payback "special event" next month. Given the concurrent plans to turn the Wyatts face and the Shield heel around the same time as one another, this may even mean that this feud could last until SummerSlam.
Random Rumors and NEWZ:
- Another talent whose future is being increasingly clear is Adam Rose, who is currently not booked to work a match until Payback, likely against Jack Swagger. The feud between Rose, Swagger and Zeb Colter, which began on Monday and spilled on to Main Event Tuesday night, also seems to indicate that Cesaro will be moving on to bigger and better things. Whether or not includes him mercilessly beating Rob Van Dam about the face and head remains unclear, but would be welcome.
- In what was likely evident to anyone watching, there were a significant amount of changes to the script from Monday night's Raw episode. While Batista and Daniel Bryan's match being nixed was previously reported, it now appears that at some point before the show the plan was for Batista to lose again to Roman Reigns. Also discussed was the idea of having Evolution be timekeepers for the Wyatts-Shield match. Which would have not led to any kind of hilarious predictable interference from the group at all, they pinkie swear.
- Building on the success of his star-making turns in such cinematic classics as River of Darkness and Death From Above (trailer embedded below, warning NOT SAFE FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION), Kurt Angle is hoping to be a TV star after signing on to do the pilot for a show called "Emergency: LA". Produced by former UK promoter Lee Davies, the show will follow the lives of, you guessed it, various emergency personnel in the Los Angeles area and will also feature the former Mrs. Paul Burchill/Winter, Katie Lea Burchill.
