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:
- Daniel Bryan will continue to be heavily involved in feuds as General Manager of SmackDown Live because WWE feels he can help get a lot of guys over. That's why they continue running with the Miz angle and have started up with the Baron Corbin stuff.
- Randy Orton is off for the week, and may miss television next week due to the birth of his daughter. He shouldn't be out long.
- There don't appear to be any plans to call up Samoa Joe anytime soon, and that's one of the reasons he won the title from Shinsuke Nakamura at TakeOver: Toronto.
- Further, it looks entirely possible Nakamura will win it back in Osaka early next month.
- The Observer notes there were multiple late changes in match winners for TakeOver: Toronto, notably the tag title change and Authors of Pain winning the Dusty Classic.
