New, comments

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:

  • It's expected that Seth Rollins will win the WWE championship at Battleground, pinning Dean Ambrose, and he'll then feud with Roman Reigns over it going into SummerSlam.
  • There's still no word on what caused the backstage fight between Sin Cara and Simon Gotch but apparently Sin Cara won the fight easy.
  • If Bayley isn't the surprise partner for Sasha Banks at Battleground, it's likely she'll be called up to the main roster in September, according to the Observer.
  • Regarding NXT, the idea now is to start using new names on television in the months to come.
  • The Observer notes Cedric Alexander, Kota Ibushi, Mascara Dorada, and Akira Tozawa are all believed to have been offered deals by WWE and Yoshihiro Tajiri may also get one too.
