New, 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:

  • WWE has not decided officially on the Hell in a Cell main event but it's still likely Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte gets that spot.
  • Mickie James wasn't at the NXT tapings for her return announcement because she was in Europe with Magnus, according to the Observer. She's only doing one show and is replacing Trish Stratus as the planned match for Asuka.
  • The Observer also notes that Trish match was designed to have Asuka go strong heel and they could do the same with James.
  • Hideo Itami is looking at missing the next two-to-three months with his neck injury but he won't need surgery.
  • Apparently executives within WWE are already giving high marks to Roderick Strong.
