Rumor Roundup (April 12, 2017): AJ Styles plans, JBL situation, Mauro Ranallo, 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:

  • AJ Styles isn't planned for the US title picture, but this is rather a way to kill time until after the Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt feud is finished up.
  • As of now, there is no plan for JBL to face any kind of punishment over the Mauro Ranallo situation or any reports coming out about his alleged antics within WWE.
  • Ranallo, for his part, is not expected to return to WWE before his contract runs out in a few months.
  • Mojo Rawley is expected to get a continued push on SmackDown Live.
  • WWE is interested in signing Lio Rush to work in NXT.
