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:
- Apparently the Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt House of Horrors match at Payback may be partially taped, with the end of the match happening in the arena but the beginning pre-taped somewhere else.
- Roman Reigns was at Raw this week but WWE chose not to use him for television, instead holding off on his return until Payback.
- WWE is apparently interested in Crazzy Steve, Gunner, Lio Rush, Donovan Dijak, and Kyle O'Reilly, all of which will likely end up with the company with the next few months.
- According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, Chris Atkins has been released from NXT. Andrea D'Marco has also left WWE.
- PW Insider is reporting on a backstage "incident" involving Karen and Jeff Jarrett and Bob Ryder that took place a few days ago at the Impact tapings. Apparently it was bad but it looks like all sides are still working together for now.
