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:

  • Seth Rollins was injured enough that WWE didn't want him to get physical on Raw this week but he's not expected to miss any actual television time.
  • Although Ryback is in talks with Bellator about possibly doing MMA, it doesn't look likely he'll end up doing it. If it does, it likely won't be anytime soon.
  • The speculation now is that The New Day will be breaking Demolition's record for longest run with the tag team titles. That would be why they were pushing the comparison so hard on Raw this week.
  • If WWE did end up purchasing TNA, the word is there are only a few wrestlers they would want to bring on as regular talents, including Matt Hardy.
  • According to Squared Circle Sirens, former UFC fighter Shayna Baszler will be receiving a tryout at the WWE Performance Center.
