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:

  • WWE is considering a face turn for Rusev. His match with Brock Lesnar in Mexico City might be a test run and/or part of the story of his turn.

  • TNA has reportedly not repaid Billy Corgan as he formally requested, and it’s expected legal issues between Impact Ventures and their former President will continue.

  • Eva Marie has been cast in a currently filming WWE Studios movie, so her return to SmackDown won’t be until December at the earliest.

  • Máscara Dorada, aka Gran Metalik, is finishing up his commitments in Mexico this week and should start full-time with WWE in time for 205 Live’s premiere.

  • Following yesterday’s report of Scott Hall no-showing an indie booking, DDP Tweeted that he hasn’t spoken to Hall, but he has heard he’s okay.
