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, it's just circulating around the pro wrestling rumor mill. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • Sting's debut at Survivor Series last night was, apparently, a last minute decision. He had no idea for most of the week that WWE would finally make the call to bring him in for the show.
  • In addition, although this is obvious from the booking last night, it looks like Sting will work a match with Triple H. There are also rumors that he will work with Undertaker at WrestleMania 31, according to reports from PW Insider.
  • Here's a rumor that appears to have originated with Twitter user FrontRowBrian, who first broke news of CM Punk walking out with Chael Sonnen at a UFC show (that was later nixed by WWE): UFC was going to announce a deal with CM Punk at a recent press conference but couldn't get it done in time. Details, apparently, are scarce. There are additional rumors that Bellator could make a play for Punk's services as well, and there may be a bit of a bidding war coming.
  • Because next year's Royal Rumble event is taking place in Philadelphia, WWE is appparently considering bringing in a couple original ECW names as surprise entrants in the Rumble match.
  • The long delay in getting the Xavier Woods/Kofi Kingston/Big E faction up and running was apparently due to concerns over both the Fergueson situation and the controversy surrounding Alberto Del Rio's firing, according to Wrestling Inc.
