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:

  • Brock Lesnar is expected to work the live special on the WWE Network on Mar. 12 in Toronto, likely in another squash match scenario.
  • CM Punk's UFC debut is apparently going to happen at UFC 199 in June instead of UFC 200.
  • Because of a knee issue, Rusev may miss the Royal Rumble match.
  • Although he's leaving TNA soon, it's not expected that Kurt Angle will return to WWE anytime soon, at least not until his in-ring career is done.
  • Ric Flair is teasing that he'll be bringing Lawrence Taylor to Raw with him next Monday night in Miami.
