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:

  • According to the Observer, the pitch for the Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg match was to present it like a fight, where the announcers would treat it like one, and the finish would be much like something you would see in an MMA fight.
  • The reason the two are being put in the Royal Rumble match is to avoid having the rematch until WrestleMania 33.
  • The idea behind Raw winning the women's and tag team matches at Survivor Series was they would need it when SmackDown won the big men's match.
  • Don't be surprised if The Wyatt Family win the tag team titles before passing them off to American Alpha as the big way to get Jordan and Gable over.
  • Apparently WWE is trying to block Ryback from using The Big Guy for his nutritional supplement line, according to the Observer.
