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:

  • Though they haven't been able to come to terms on a return to the company despite several attempts over the past couple of years, Kurt Angle is still confident he'll be enshrined in WWE's Hall of Fame, telling interviewers, "it's just a matter of when".
  • Nikki Bella's career threatening neck injury will be used as a Total Divas' storyline. Unclear if it's a work for that purpose or legitimate and just being turned into an angle for the E! show.
  • Following the nuclear heat she got during her NXT run, Eva Marie may be bringing her act back to the main roster. She's teased as much with Instagram posts of her photo shoot for Fastlane.
  • Now that his angle with Alberto Del Rio is done and he finally conquered his nemesis Rusev, Jack Swagger's next role may be as a tag partner for Mark Henry.
  • Man without a promotion Hernandez is considering suing Lucha Underground (who blocked TNA from using him or showing him on broadcasts). Because he can't dispute the contract he signed, he may sue for on the grounds of LU being an unsafe work environment.
