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:

  • The Rock joked about appearing at WrestleMania 33 in a recent interview, but he is expected to appear in Orlando. Expect another freewheeling segment and not a feud or pre-promoted match, however.

  • Undertaker is not expected to get physical on SmackDown tonight, although he may "clear the ring" of some undercard workers.

  • There are no current plans to break up New Day, or have them drop Raw’s tag belts.

  • Additional punishments for Sin Cara after his fight with Chris Jericho included being "exiled" to SmackDown for the remainder of the U.K. tour and being forced to drive to Buffalo after he was barred from the company plane.

  • Linda McMahon may only be up for an appointment within the Commerce Department, but not the Secretary position.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
