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:

  • In his interview with Busted Open Radio, Alberto Del Rio says Paige will be back in the ring by April or May.
  • Goldberg will likely carry the Universal title into WrestleMania because Vince McMahon wants his match with Brock Lesnar to be the biggest thing on that card. It is almost a lock to go on last in Orlando.
  • The idea behind Samoa Joe’s suit in the opening segment this past Monday was to have him look like a hitman, according to the Observer.
  • Impact Wrestling is partnering with Japan’s Pro Wrestling NOAH on a “working relationship”. What that means isn’t defined yet, but Impact stars are headed to Yokohama for a show on Mar. 12.
  • Tony Nese suffered an ankle injury during the six-man cruiserweight tag match on Raw, but he’s not expected to miss a significant amount of time.
