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:

  • Tonight's episode of Raw is expected to feature a major angle that will lead into Royal Rumble and have big implications on WrestleMania 31.
  • As of right now, Daniel Bryan is not expected to work a match until the Royal Rumble on Jan. 25, although he is likely going to make an appearance or two on Raw leading up to it.
  • Regarding the announcement yesterday of the WWE Network launching in the UK and Ireland on Jan. 19, WWE was apparently working as hard as possible to make it available by the Royal Rumble, which is expected to be a monster show.
  • With Rey Mysterio still gone and seemingly not getting any closer to coming back, there's been some renewed speculation that he'll be officially released by WWE within the next few months.
  • Although Bully Ray has been moved to the Alumni section of the TNA website, the company apparently hopes to bring him back soon.
