New, 227 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:

  • For the record, Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio he doesn't think WWE would make those threats, but does believe they were split in the draft to send a message.
  • WWE is thinking about doing a cruiserweight division on SmackDown Live, but it will likely depend on the success of Raw's group.
  • In addition to the TNA news he told Meltzer, Cody Rhodes is said to be working on plans to work against Katsuyori Shibata in New Japan.
  • Signing BOLA winner Marty Scurll is said to be a priority for Ring of Honor.
