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:

  • John Cena vs. Seth Rollins is almost surely ending in a schmoz but it's also apparently a big possibility that Sheamus could cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase to win the WWE world heavyweight title.
  • For that matter, there's some word going around that WWE has a surprise or two in store for SummerSlam. That could be The Rock appearing, or it could be the previously mentioned cash-in, or it could be something else entirely.
  • Roman Reigns is likely going to receive another big singles push starting somewhere near the end of the year.
  • Apparently Nikki Bella has been booked the way she has over the past few months due mostly to various injuries and the need to protect her. It's expected that WWE will make a big deal of her title reign starting just after SummerSlam.
  • According to PW Insider, WWE worked on a reality series on the Performance Center showcasing NXT talents trying to make it in the business. The All Access special Triple H recently tweeted about could have something to do with that.
