Rumor Roundup (Mar. 31, 2015): Brock Lesnar suspension, Roman Reigns heel turn, Sting, more!

New, comments

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:

  • Obviously the Brock Lesnar suspension is an angle but the word on how long he'll be gone is that it will be much like last year and he'll come back for a match at SummerSlam. As for who that match will be against, it could very well involve winning the title back from Seth Rollins.
  • As for Roman Reigns it does not look like a heel turn is coming, at least not in the short term.
  • Obviously they didn't set up Undertaker vs. Sting for WrestleMania 32 next year on Raw last night but it's not off the table. Apparently Sting still really wants it but WWE may not go in that direction. We'll see.
  • Apparently some top level WWE executives want Finn Balor called up to the main roster ASAP because the feeling is he's getting paid too much to be in NXT.
  • Remember the rumors of Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva coming to WWE, on top of more recent word that Phil Baroni is coming in? Apparently there were talks at one point of some sort of MMA invasion type storyline. The fact that Ronda Rousey showed up likely isn't related, however.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
