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:
- It's expected that WWE will be running more shoot style angles like the Brock Lesnar-Randy Orton match at SummerSlam and the Miz-Daniel Bryan confrontation on Talking Smack.
- The Observer notes that if Nikki Bella hadn't been cleared to return, Bayley may very well have ended up on SmackDown Live instead of Raw.
- Speaking of Nikki, the reason she's on SmackDown Live is both to bolster the roster and because that's the brand John Cena is on.
- Sticking with Nikki, her return is apparently the biggest reason the first Cesaro vs. Sheamus match in their best-of-7 series was moved to the pre-show.
- The belief is Eric Young has signed with WWE and will be coming to NXT soon.
