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.

  • The two roster trades Vince McMahon is most interested in seeing involve AJ Styles moving to Raw while The New Day head to SmackDown.
  • Styles current storyline with Shane McMahon might be the reason he’s moved to Monday nights.
  • There’s said to be a good deal of concern backstage that Seth Rollins is rushing his rehab to make WrestleMania despite significant risk he could re-injure his knee.
  • Erick Rowan was backstage at SmackDown this week, but there’s no plan to introduce him into the World title story at this time.
