Rumor Roundup (May 5, 2015): Payback main event, Undertaker WWE contract, Chris Jericho return, 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:

  • Apparently one of the reasons Dean Ambrose was added to the Payback main event to make it a Fatal 4-Way was because of the planned triple threat at SummerSlam and WWE not wanting to do too many triple threat matches in such a short period of time. And, yes, it looks like Ambrose is the fall guy.
  • According to the Observer, Undertaker's WWE contract is coming up soon though it's still expected that he will work WrestleMania 32 next year in Dallas.
  • Chris Jericho has been teasing an announcement regarding WWE and it looks like that will be another house show run this summer, according to PW Insider.
  • Charlotte was backstage at Raw last night and is scheduled for SmackDown. As mentioned, her main roster call up is apparently coming really soon.
  • PW Insider notes that Billy Corgan is set to work the upcoming Impact Wrestling tapings in Orlando this weekend, so he's starting in his new role with creative soon.
