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:

  • The new plan for the Universal championship could be to have Seth Rollins win and go into the same rumored plans they had prior, with matches against Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho down the road.
  • Randy Orton was kept off weekend house shows as a precautionary measure after he was cut so bad in the match with Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.
  • Rumors have been going around for days that Bo Dallas was intoxicated and held off a flight to Mexico, which is why he missed the WWE tour.
  • Apparently Konnor of The Ascension officiated Sasha Banks wedding, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet. So that's cool.
  • Dixie Carter may be completely done with TNA or is on her way out.
