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:

  • There's been talk that Kurt Angle could be a surprise in the Royal Rumble match.
  • Brock Lesnar could very well start wrestling on Raw here soon, instead of simply showing up for promo spots and brief physical altercations.
  • WWE may be planning to update the designs for the Intercontinental and US championship titles.
  • Beth Phoenix could be going into the WWE Hall of Fame this year.
  • WWE apparently has deals in place with ICW, OTT, and Progress to air shows on the Network, and announcements could be coming soon.
