Rumor Roundup (May 21, 2015): Randy Orton plans, Renee Young interest, Samoa Joe WWE deal, 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:

  • It looks entirely possible that Randy Orton could miss the Elimination Chamber show for no reason other than lack of creative direction. That said, It's also possible WWE could do an Orton & Roman Reigns vs. Big Show & Kane match.
  • The Observer has noted that both ESPN and FOX have "expressed interest" in Renee Young hoping she'll do mainstream sports when her WWE contract expires.
  • According to PW Torch, Samoa Joe's deal with WWE will apparently be like Rhyno's in the sense that he'll work a lot of NXT dates but also get to work the independent scene.
  • The word going around is that Sami Zayn will be having surgery on his shoulder and will be out for a while.
  • Lucha Underground is still working on signing Rey Mysterio but everything is up in the air because of talks for a second season and a new TV deal.
