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:

  • Sheamus should be back working matches on WWE television within a couple weeks, at most.
  • Sasha Banks getting paired up with Becky Lynch may be WWE trying to get her support from the mainstream fans who cheer for Lynch to make her the biggest babyface heading into a big program with Charlotte, according to the Observer. It's also possible a triple threat is planned for WrestleMania 32.
  • The Observer notes Shinsuke Nakamura will likely get a new name in WWE/NXT and WWE has not purchased the rights to "Subconscious."
  • Whoever loses in the Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe match at NXT Takeover: Dallas is likely headed for the main roster the quickest.
  • It looks likely Awesome Kong will be let go by TNA over the backstage altercation with Reby Sky.
