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:

  • Brock Lesnar may be returning to WWE before the end of the year, if not for the reported on match with Goldberg at Survivor Series then possibly for a house show in December.
  • According to the Observer, WWE is going to book Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte for the Raw women's title in a Hell in a Cell match at the PPV this month.
  • Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE may be getting more lax on verbiage thanks to ratings falling so far. This includes saying "fans" instead of "WWE Universe" every time. There may be other changes made in an attempt to help turn things around.
  • Chris Jericho is expected to leave WWE again by the end of the year, which could be why they might rush a split with Kevin Owens and build to a match between the two.
  • Kota Ibushi will not be signing a full time deal with WWE but will continue to do sporadic work with the company.
