New, 117 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:

  • Undertaker is not booked for SmackDown tonight, and may not reappear until TLC on Dec. 4.

  • Except for the Mexico City house show match with Rusev on Dec. 3, Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to appear for WWE until 2017. His loss at Survivor Series likely won’t be dealt with until the build to Royal Rumble.

  • Plans call for Charlotte Flair to retain her title against Sasha Banks next week on Raw and move to a program with Bayley, while Banks feuds with Nia Jax.

  • This is a big "if", but word is if they can secure Ronda Rousey for WrestleMania 33, WWE would book her to work with Charlotte at the show.

  • Brie Bella was a guest on Lillian Garcia’s new Afterbuzz TV program, where she reiterated that she’s not retired from the ring and plans to comeback after giving birth to her daughter.
