Rumor Roundup (April 6, 2017): Undertaker surgery, Gotch release, changed WrestleMania plans, 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:

  • Undertaker is reportedly scheduling surgeries he put off for after his retirement, possibly including a full hip replacement.
  • Several reports went around yesterday claiming Simon Gotch was released by WWE for having a “bad attitude”, etc. Gotch shot those down and said he’s lining up interviews to tell his side of the story ASAP.
  • Initial plans for WrestleMania reportedly called for a Six-Man Cruiserweight tag, and Wrestling Observer reported talents were even told they would be on the card before it was cut for time constraints.
  • Ricochet indicated on Twitter that Lucha Underground’s mid-season break extended the amount of time his contract with them limits where else he can sign.
  • According to Squared Circle Sirens, indie wrestler Angel Rose (who worked the last NXT taping as Priscilla Zuniga) has signed with Impact, where she performs in LAX as Diamanté.
