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:

  • According to the Observer, WWE had actually decided to fire Paige but then changed their mind. Then she decided to quit but then changed her mind. Now, the two sides have mended fences enough that she'll return once she's healthy enough to.
  • Even though WWE reported on the injury, apparently Vince McMahon wanted it kept quiet that he tore his quad while training.
  • An all women's tournament, much like the Cruiserweight Classic, could be in the works for early 2017, according to PW Insider.
  • WWE may run an NXT TakeOver event in Madison Square Garden before the year is out.
  • Apparently tickets for Backlash were being given away in town the night before the show.
