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:

  • It's likely Goldberg will lay down the challenge for a match with Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series on Raw tonight but it's also possible WWE lets him get physical with a lower card wrestler.
  • WWE apparently had some plans in place with Trish Stratus to possibly work some matches this year and in 2017 but her pregnancy changed that.
  • That could be why Mickie James was brought back to wrestle Asuka at TakeOver: Toronto. For the moment, it looks like she's only in for the one match but that could always change.
  • Enzo & Big Cass vs. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows and Bayley vs. Dana Brooke are matches expected for Hell in a Cell.
  • There were apparently changes made to the WWE show in Edmonton this past weekend due to bad weather, including Adam Pearce having to produce the event on his own.
