Rumor Roundup (May 26, 2015): Elimination Chamber surprise, Lana & Rusev, Kevin Owens push, 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:

  • There is apparently a big surprise in the works for the Elimination Chamber event this Sunday night.
  • It looks like WWE is going to drop the Russian aspects of both Rusev and Lana's characters here soon. Don't expect much explanation either.
  • If it seems like Kevin Owens has been pushed to the moon lately, that's because he's got big supporters within WWE and apparently there are really big plans for him in the future.
  • WWE is apparently waiting to see how Samoa Joe does in NXT before considering a main roster call up.
  • According to Wrestling Inc, Scott Hall was telling the promoter at the show he was kicked out of for being drunk recently that he was going to be working for WWE down in NXT in the coming weeks. Apparently Hall's friends pleaded with him to leave the event to avoid negative press so it wouldn't cost him his new job in NXT.
