New, 108 comments

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:

  • Don't be surprised if Brock Lesnar loses to Seth Rollins at Battleground or, if not a loss, fails to win the title.
  • While it certainly seems as though WWE is pushing Nikki Bella to break AJ Lee's Divas title record, in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer remarked that it's not a lock she'll get there.
  • Speaking of Nikki, it looks like yet another match with Paige for the Divas title will be booked for Battleground.
  • Austin Aries will be working as a free agent going forward, possibly alternating between TNA and ROH for the time being. It doesn't look like he'll end up in NXT.
  • According to the Observer, Andy Barton, the now former Executive Vice President at TNA, leaving the company is considered a huge deal and a really bad sign.
