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:

  • As of now, Goldberg is indeed penciled in to win the Universal title from Kevin Owens in the main event of Fastlane.
  • Speaking of which, that will be where Owens and Chris Jericho finally break up as best friends and lead to their planned match at WrestleMania 33.
  • Mick Foley isn't expected to last past WrestleMania as Raw General Manager.
  • Erick Rowan has apparently been at the WWE Performance Center this week to get clearance to return from injury.
  • Scott D'Amore was recently rehired by TNA.
