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 has no plans for a 2016 Slammy Awards show, according to PWInsider.
  • Eli Drake of TNA is a name WWE is hoping to sign in the new year, says Wrestling Observer.
  • Also from the Observer, Chris Hero has already passed WWE’s medical tests and his return appears to be a done deal.
  • Naomi and Jey Uso’s ankle injuries will likely keep them out until the same post-Christmas Madison Square Garden show at which AJ Styles is supposed to return.
  • Alexa Bliss is teasing her first WWE merchandise for a Friday release.
