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.

  • According to the Observer, Stephanie McMahon was "furious" over AJ Lee's tweets and her response to them was ordered by Vince McMahon.
  • So it looks like Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler will work together at WrestleMania 31 after all only it will be with Bad News Barrett and Dean Ambrose in a multi-man match for the Intercontinental title. R-Truth could also be involved and it could be a ladder match, replacing the Money in the Bank match that has been missing from WrestleMania for years now.
  • According to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal the city is planning to fight for WrestleMania 33 in 2017. Philadelphia and Orlando are also rumored to be in the mix for that show.
