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:
- The Beast in the East show is slotted for two hours on the WWE Network and may not be shown in its entirety, at least not live. There's also a rumor going around that the John Cena & Dolph Ziggler vs. Kane & King Barrett match will main event but that seems silly. It is, however, a glorified house show.
- Nikki Bella has worked through multiple injuries during her title run, including a hamstring issue. She's apparently dealing with a separated shoulder right now.
- There's some word going around at Wrestling Inc that Shinsuke Nakamura and Kazuchika Okada are getting WWE tryouts.
- According to the Observer, the NXT show in Brooklyn during SummerSlam weekend will be set up for 5,000 fans but they will add seats if the demand is there.
- Cody Rhodes is expected to return to television on next Monday night's episode of Raw after taking time off for the death of his father, Dusty Rhodes.
