New, 235 comments

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:

  • WWE may be turning Seth Rollins babyface to challenge heel champion Kevin Owens, alongside Triple H, who, despite the reaction, is a heel.
  • Speaking of Triple H, his return was in the plans but not when it happened, as it was rushed because of the Finn Balor injury.
  • The Observer notes that Daniel Bryan's contract with WWE is no longer frozen because he's actively working and his deal doesn't expire until 2018.
  • Charlotte vs. Bayley is expected for the Clash of Champions pay-per-view, though there's no real chance they do a title change here.
  • Sasha Banks could be back on television as soon as next week but definitely before the end of the month.
