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:

  • As far as the Eva Marie suspension, Justin LaBar is saying she did nothing wrong and "made clear she never wanted to be in violation and made the effort not to be." A statement from the Eva camp is expected soon.
  • WWE apparently wasn't happy with Dean Ambrose after his interview with Steve Austin because he was making negative comments about creative decisions and they didn't like his saying Brock Lesnar didn't want to do anything in their match at WrestleMania.
  • It's now expected that Alberto Del Rio will leave WWE just as soon as he's legally able to do so. Paige is not expected to do the same.
  • John Cena is expected to be going on another hiatus soon, which could mean AJ Styles will be winning their match at SummerSlam. The New Day are also expected to drop the tag team titles to Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
  • Apparently some of Will Ospreay's "pipe bomb" promo on Vader not wanting to lose to him was a shoot in the sense that once the match was agreed on, that's what happened. There is almost certainly going to be a rematch.
