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:

  • Goldberg will work a part time schedule much like Brock Lesnar for the duration of this run, which isn't expected to last past WrestleMania next year.
  • One of the biggest reasons for putting Goldberg in the Royal Rumble, and announcing it so soon, was to help sell tickets to the Alamodome. Expect a big push to sell the building out starting anytime.
  • Sasha Banks may be turning heel within the next few months.
  • WWE may actually be building to a Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman feud, and it's at least possible that's a match at WrestleMania 33.
  • While Dana Brooke was looked at as a potential top star in the women's division at one time, that's no longer the case.
