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:

  • According to the Observer, Brock Lesnar vs. Bill Goldberg, Triple H vs. Seth Rollins, and Shaq vs. Big Show are the three matches that are "locked in" for WrestleMania 33.
  • Other matches discussed for the show are John Cena vs. Undertaker or Roman Reigns vs. Undertaker and a multiple person women's title match for the Raw brand.
  • Undertaker, by the way, could be a candidate to win the Royal Rumble this year and the big story at WrestleMania could be his challenging for a title, either Cena with the SmackDown title or Reigns with the Universal championship.
  • Hulk Hogan's return to WWE could be as a surprise at WrestleMania 33.
  • The Observer notes the wrestlers who signed on to do the WWE UK Tournament signed deals for $20,000.
