Rumor Roundup (Mar. 13, 2017): WWE tickets concern, Rusev time off, Asuka call up, more!

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 some concern within WWE about Monday Night Raw failing to sell out on the road to WrestleMania.
  • Rusev may be getting shoulder surgery, as we were told Big Show is telling fans that's the case. Either way, he's taking time off.
  • WWE teased Asuka challenging Alexa Bliss on social media when noting her appearance at the MSG house show yesterday, then deleted and changed its phrasing before posting an article saying she will "obviously remain focused on her NXT title defense" during WrestleMania weekend. This has led to obvious speculation.
  • ESPN will have a big presence at WrestleMania 33.
  • There has been word going around that Kenny Omega may appear at the ROH Supercard of Honor show but the Observer is saying that isn't happening.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
