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:

  • Becky Lynch vs. Mickie James is the direction SmackDown is heading, but don’t expect that feud to make the WrestleMania card - where whoever is wrestling Nikki Bella has the best chance of working the main show in Orlando.
  • WWE is sending out fan surveys again, including one to fans in Mexico asking about content from local promotions and a tournament-style lucha show, which is seen as an indicator that a WWE Latin American Championship Tournament may be on the docket soon.
  • Jeff Jarrett flew from the TNA tapings in Orlando to Los Angeles for meetings regarding the future of Global Force Wrestling last week, per PWInsider.
  • Still no word on his future plans, but here’s a rumor killer on Kenny Omega. While there was never much chance he’d be in San Antonio seeing as his New Japan contract is in force through Jan. 31, Omega is scheduled for an appearance in Chile during Royal Rumble weekend, making it almost logistically impossible for him to be there.
  • Marti Belle is said to be done with TNA, per PWInsider.
