Rumor Roundup (Mar. 8, 2016): Sami Zayn main roster plans, final Hall of Fame entrants, Nakamura's contract, more!

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:

  • Sami Zayn's appearances on Raw and SmackDown this week will lead to him appearing at Roadblock, which will set-up his being added to the multi-man Intercontinental title match at WrestleMania.
  • This is effectively his main roster call-up, but like Kevin Owens last year, Zayn will finish up his storylines in NXT simultaneously.
  • PWInsider says the final two entrants in this year's Hall of Fame class will be Stan Hanson and Jacqueline Moore.
  • Shinsuke Nakamura's WWE contract is reportedly for three years.
  • Christopher Daniels and BJ Whitmer have taken on larger roles backstage at Ring of Honor shows.
