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:

  • It looks likely WWE won't use many surprises in the Royal Rumble match next year.
  • Undertaker vs. John Cena is still on the table for WrestleMania 33.
  • Mickie James is apparently going to start working on the SmackDown Live brand starting as early as next month.
  • Lillian Garcia is now officially done with WWE and any future work will be on a per appearance deal.
  • Don't be surprised if Matt Hardy gets even more influence over TNA programming in 2017.
