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:
- "Backstage chatter" puts Dolph Ziggler as the likely loser of Sunday’s career vs. title match against Miz at No Mercy.
- It’s believed Ziggler might want to transition to a producer/agent job and focus more on his other interests like stand-up comedy & political commentary.
- Billy Corgan skipped Dixie Carter’s meeting with the TNA roster on Monday, a move that caused a good deal of discussion and speculation in the locker room.
- Regarding yesterday’s sale rumors, many believe the scenario with Corgan and WWE will never work because Vince won’t do any deal that doesn’t involve Dixie, Billy and everyone with a stake in TNA signing non-compete agreements.
- WWE filed for a trademark on "WWEmoji" and some sports entertainment-themed emoticons should be coming to your phone soon.
