New, 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:

  • Jim Ross has joined Dave Meltzer in speculating Paige is possibly on her way out of WWE, and there have been whispers the 24 year old Brit has lawyers exploring her options.

  • As of right now, the plan is for the Usos to leave Backlash as SmackDown tag champs so the three other babyface teams from the tournament semi-finals can chase them.

  • The trailer for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s Battle of Los Angeles DVD lists Cody Rhodes as “Cody R”, adding to speculation WWE is cracking down on his using his father’s kayfabe surname outside the company.

  • Bo Dallas’ mini-push is to make him a more respectable opponent for Bin Wang in Shanghai and isn’t expected to last.

  • WWE Developmental has signed the first members of a new class, according to SquaredCircleSirens. Tough Enough tryout Victoria Gonzalez, amateur wrestler Max Wessell and MMA fighter Alvin Abitz are expected to report with a new group to the Performance Center in October.
