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 is apparently no heat on either Chris Jericho or Brock Lesnar for the backstage scuffle they got into at SummerSlam over the finish of the Lesnar vs. Randy Orton main event.
  • Speaking of that match, PW Insider is reporting the blood wasn't planned as part of the finish. It was supposed to be a TKO like they played it but without the blood.
  • WWE had different plans for Raw on Monday but Finn Balor's injury forced rewrites all the way up to when the show was live on the air.

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.
