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 reason WWE is announcing Brock Lesnar's SummerSlam opponent before his UFC fight may be due to the fact that UFC will actually promote that match on the UFC 200 show this weekend..
  • It's still expected that Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins will be the top stars on Raw and John Cena and AJ Styles will be the top stars on SmackDown after the brand split, at least at first.
  • According to the Observer, WWE may book a New Day vs. Wyatt Family "compound match" that will be an attempt to top what TNA did with The Final Deletion.
  • While WWE is high on both Enzo Amore and Big Cass, not surprisingly, they are particularly high on Cass.
  • TNA is apparently working on some surprises for its episode of Impact next week.
