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:

  • A favorite subject of ours here at the Rumor Roundup is the potential returns of past Superstars. Another name to add to the ever-growing list is John Morrison. Since leaving WWE in late 2011, the multi-time Intercontinental and Tag Team champion has been working on the independent scene. Back in December, Morrison claimed that the door was open for his WWE return at any time and he expected to return in 6 months time. With WWE in major need of some veteran mid-card faces, Morrison is a name to watch.
  • Triple H underwent an MRI on his injured wrist, but no structural damage was found. He should be good to go for his projected "rubber match" with Brock Lesnar at May's Extreme Rules pay per view.
  • Add Bret Hart to the list of Dean Ambrose fans. In an interview, Hart had this to say about the current Shield member: "He's really good. He's got it down. He's such a first-rate thinker on his feet when it comes to his timing, his expressions, his quickness, his deviousness. I love his deviousness! I saw him this past weekend and told him I thought he was great."
  • Undertaker actually underwent minor knee surgery a few weeks prior to WrestleMania 29 to do some clean up within the knee. It obviously didn't affect his performance, as he and CM Punk put on what is widely regarded as the match of the night. The Deadman came through his match with Punk unscathed, at least compared to previous years. This is believed to be a big factor in his availability for non-WrestleMania shows, such as the upcoming April 22 Raw from the UK. It has also been rumored that, if he is physically up for it, 'Taker may participate in some other pay-per-view later this year, particularly SummerSlam.
  • Kurt Angle is still discussing his eventual retirement, and it sounds like a WWE "retirement tour" is a definite possibility. When asked who he would like his final match to be against, he said the following: "I'll give you this, the picks would be between Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, or obviously John Cena or Dwayne Johnson."
