Rumor Roundup (Nov. 14, 2015): Steve Austin, WrestleMania 32, Batista WWE return, SmackDown, more!

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:

  • With the injury to Seth Rollins, and both The Rock and Ronda Rousey unlikely to wrestle and only possibly able to appear on the show, apparently there's been a renewed emphasis on Stone Cold Steve Austin's role at WrestleMania 32, though it's not clear what that will be.
  • For that matter, while Batista can't be back in time for the Royal Rumble due to film commitments, WWE may be looking to bring him in for WrestleMania 32.
  • WWE and USA are going to start a big promotional push for SmackDown moving to the USA Network in January, much like they did for the move to Thursday. It's expected there will be a renewed focus on putting major angles on the show.
  • Apparently Randy Orton is getting married this weekend. If so, congrats to him!
  • Goldust should be making his return in the near future.
