Shinsuke Nakamura WWE Network

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 Vince McMahon has been changing his mind on a daily basis regarding what WWE will do with the “Superstar Shake-Up” next week. The only thing that seems certain is that a top star from each brand will move over to the other.
  • The idea of putting Shinsuke Nakamura on SmackDown Live was apparently to replace John Cena as a top star, at least while he's out working on other projects.
  • Aiden English is expected to get a push now that he's no longer in a tag team with the recently released Simon Gotch.
  • The Drifter will likely be on one of the two main roster brands starting next week.
  • Lucha Underground is likely going away soon, or at the very least morphing into something other than what it's been.
