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:

  • There has been speculation making the rounds that there could be additional WWE suspensions coming soon.
  • Bill Goldberg and WWE could be working together on an in-ring return sooner than you think, and a SummerSlam appearance is a possibility.
  • Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton is currently set to go on last at SummerSlam.
  • Australia could be getting an NXT Takeover special when WWE tours there next year.
  • The Observer is now outright reporting that "it absolutely was his interview" that got Joey Styles fired. Apparently it was at least partially to send a message to everyone who does interviews about what they can and can't say.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
