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:

  • AJ Styles isn't expected to align with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows at Payback, and Roman Reigns will leave the show as WWE world heavyweight champion.
  • There is a plan for Alberto Del Rio to turn babyface at some point, although that may not happen anytime soon, according to the Observer.
  • According to PW Insider, Adam Rose responding to his suspension the way he did was a "shock" to "a lot of people" within WWE. It's not likely to affect his job, however.
  • PW Insider also reported Konnor didn't test positive for anything illegal.
  • Dave Meltzer mentioned on a recent episode of the LAW that a second party interested in buying/investing in TNA is a television company.
