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:

  • No matter the outcome of his fight at UFC 200, Brock Lesnar isn't expected to lose to Randy Orton at SummerSlam.
  • Vince McMahon's return to Raw next week is being done in part to help jump start viewership ahead of the WWE draft and SmackDown moving to Tuesday night on July 19.
  • WWE is high on Cathy Kelley right now and you can expect to see her role expand within the company soon enough.
  • Wrestlers in the Cruiserweight Classic will apparently have to make weight for every match they partake in throughout the tournament.
