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:

  • Alberto Del Rio is said to be unhappy with WWE because he was promised a main event push when he came back.
  • Triple H is rumored to be the guy keeping Del Rio from a top spot. He apparently isn't a fan, and told his father-in-law the Mexican star's ego would be a problem if he was around the title scene.
  • More Del Rio drama... the former WWE champ had a fling with Charlotte before he started seeing Paige, which has lead to heat between the two women backstage.
  • Because he likes using real tension in angles, Vince McMahon has reportedly told writers to pitch him angles to restart a Charlotte/Paige feud for after the Women's champ finishes with Natalya.
  • Regarding another possible Women't title contender, Dave Meltzer says Sasha Banks is being kept off television for "storyline reasons".
