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:

  • The Observer notes "some major names may have been juggled in recent weeks" in regards to the WWE Draft.
  • Because of the draft, WWE is treating Battleground like a lead-in for SummerSlam, meaning not to expect anything major as it's all being saved for the next big PPV event.
  • Dave Meltzer noted recently that the plan after the WWE brand split is to have Raw stars appear on Superstars and SmackDown stars appear on Main Event.
  • According to the Observer, there have been some talks between Ring of Honor and Cody Rhodes and he may show up in the promotion at some point.
  • TNA may have to change its date for Bound for Glory due to a conflict with WWE running a show on the date they had planned.
