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:
- Here's your annual "expect a big angle on tonight's episode of Raw" rumor. Apparently the company feels it needs to do something big headed into Battleground. That could very well be Charlotte and Sasha Banks appearing.
- Speaking of those two, Dave Meltzer remarked on Wrestling Observer Radio this past weekend that WWE officials sent a memo to NXT officials with a list of talent they have no plans on using in the immediate future. Charlotte and Sasha were not on that list.
- According to PW Insider, WWE appears to have cancelled a house show in White Plains, New York that was planned for the night before SummerSlam.
- There had been some rumors going around that Roddy Piper was released from his Legend's contract with WWE but the company is denying that.
- Some rumors came from Hornswoggle being at a Global Force Wrestling event recently but the Observer notes that there's nothing to it and he was simply there as a fan.
