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:

  • There are some rumblings that Ryback may be released by WWE as a result of everything that has happened in the past few days.
  • Enzo Amore was backstage at Raw this week but apparently they didn't use him because they don't know when he'll be able to wrestle again and didn't want to have him back on so soon after an announced concussion.
  • Although there was some belief that WWE booked Ric Flair to be banned from ringside at Extreme Rules over his recent incident at an airport, PW Insider is reporting that's not the case and it was just a creative decision.
  • The call back to the Montreal Screwjob for the Charlotte vs. Natalya match at Payback was not a last minute decision but instead decided on over a week before the show, according to PW Insider.
  • Alberto Del Rio vs. Sheamus is the likely next program for both.
