Rumor Roundup (April 7, 2015): AJ Lee retirement, Seth Rollins' WWE title, Finn Balor call up, 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:

  • Regarding WWE speaking so highly of AJ Lee on Raw, apparently the idea is to avoid burying her, even in a subtle way, like they did with CM Punk because the company is hoping to maintain as good a relationship as possible, at least for now.
  • The deal with the side plates on Seth Rollins' WWE world heavyweight title is that WWE had to order new ones to fit the belt.
  • Finn Balor is apparently going on the European tour with the main roster and his call up should be coming soon. In addition, WWE has filed a trademark for "Balor Club" and will be pushing that hard once he comes up to the main roster.
  • PW Insider reported that Jerry Lawler was always booked to join Byron Saxton on Raw commentary last week and it wasn't due to Saxton bombing. So there's that.
  • Uhaa Nation apparently started up with WWE at the Performance Center yesterday, according to PW Insider.
