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:

  • The Rock gave an interview this past weekend teasing the possibility of both appearing at WrestleMania 31 and building to a match with Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32. Apparently, that's at least a possibility. According to Dave Meltzer, part of the strategy of Paul Heyman taking so many shots at Rock during the lead up to the Roman Reigns match is to account for the possibility for a match with Lesnar to help break the attendance record in Dallas.
  • WWE is going to push as hard as possible to sign Brock Lesnar to a new deal today, according to the Observer. The reason for this is because they want to lock in WrestleMania plans, which could include having him retain. They can't do that without his signing a new contract, however.
  • There's some word going around that WWE seamstress Sandra Gray has said she's making a new outfit for Lana to wear at WrestleMania. If so, of course, Lana would be appearing at the show after all.
  • Paige's mom, Sweet Saraya, noted on Twitter that she is going to be at WrestleMania 31, leading to speculation that she could get involved with the show. However, there don't appear to be any plans for her to be used on screen.
  • Don't be surprised if Adrian Neville wins the NXT tournament and works the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal to kick off his main roster run.
