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:

  • There will likely be at least one title change at TLC this weekend, and maybe two.
  • WWE has apparently made changes to its pay-per-view schedule in 2017 due to Network subscriber numbers. They could be cutting down to 16 shows.
  • Big Show is expected back on television within the next month or so.
  • Tickets for the Raw after WrestleMania 33 have already sold out and SmackDown Live tickets are apparently moving very well.
  • Ariya Daivari, Mustafa Ali, and Nixon Newell have all signed with WWE, according to the Observer. The first two will be in the cruiserweight division.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
