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:

  • Goldberg is believed to be signed for three matches - the Rumble, WrestleMania 33 and one other.
  • Big E got a lot of heat from the higher ups for his joke on the Dec. 19 Raw about the numerous titles Charlotte’s won recently.
  • If everything goes through with his signing, Chris Hero is expected to replace Samoa Joe in NXT.
  • Vince McMahon is extremely unhappy with ITV’s World of Sport revival in the United Kingdom, and it may be impacting WWE’s relationship with Jim Ross, who is doing play-by-play.
  • Despite his hip condition, Mick Foley was brought back for Roadblock & Raw last week because Stephanie McMahon was on vacation and Vince wanted an authority figure.
