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:

  • AJ Lee and CM Punk are apparently on their honeymoon in Hawaii and the two were spotted out jogging. Here's the source for this, including pictures. Because AJ has a toned stomach and is running it's being taken as some sign that she's not actually pregnant as has been recently rumored. In addition, people are running with the idea that Punk is trying to get back in shape for a return to the ring as opposed to, you know, general health and well being. If you're thinking this sounds ridiculous, that's because it does.
  • It appears WWE talent still haven't received their payouts for WrestleMania 30 and it's led to unease among the roster. If you'll remember, one of the reasons cited for Punk leaving was concern over PPV payouts with the WWE Network launching.
  • The issues between Cameron and Naomi are, of course, being filmed for Total Divas season three, which starts airing in September. The two are apparently headed for a split and that will likely come this Sunday night in Boston at the Money in the Bank PPV. with the plan being for Cameron to cost Naomi the Divas title. You can imagine how this will play out on Total Divas, if you're one of the around 1.1 million or so who watch it every week.
  • Rybaxel vs. Goldust & Stardust is now expected to be added to Money in the Bank after Rybaxel called out the latter team on last night's episode of Main Event.
  • There was apparently an incident involving a female fan at last night's SmackDown taping in Pittsburgh. During Roman Reigns' entrance for his match with Kane, said female fan allegedly attempted to grab him and in response security grabbed her and escorted her out of the building.
  • In off television news, Adam Rose has been relegated to working dark matches with the likes of Heath Slater for the time being. They haven't totally given up on him but they're getting there fast. Elsewhere, NXT talents The Ascension and Charlotte have been working main roster dark matches as well. Don't be surprised if either or both are called up sometime around or after SummerSlam.
