Roman Reigns

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, there are still no plans for a proper Roman Reigns heel turn, even with the Undertaker match at WrestleMania.
  • WrestleMania is expected to be a 7 hour show this year.
  • The SmackDown tag team titles may not be defended at WrestleMania 33, and it could be the impetus for a post-event storyline for American Alpha/the entirety of the blue brands tag division.
  • Apparently Jerry Lawler will be doing commentary for at least one match at WrestleMania 33.
  • Shinsuke Nakamura is expected to get called up to the main roster later this year.
