New, 298 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:

  • On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the Miz TV segment on Raw this week with Team PCB was supposed to feature hints of the team breaking up because they all want to go after Nikki Bella's Divas title but it didn't come across.
  • Speaking of Nikki, it does indeed look like she will break AJ Lee's record for longest Divas title reign and, according to the Observer, "internally, she is a lock to remain in a top position for as long as her relationship with Cena is solid."
  • There's apparently been some renewed talk of Rey Mysterio coming back to WWE, as noted by the Observer.
  • Apparently there was originally an idea to put Roman Reigns on the cover of WWE 2K16 but Steve Austin was chosen instead for promotional reasons.
  • According to the Observer, Minnesota is "pretty much a lock" to get WrestleMania, probably in 2017 so WWE can beat the Super Bowl there.
