New, 138 comments

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:

  • Brock Lesnar is expected to be around more during this Universal championship run, according to the Observer, although so far only Great Balls of Fire and SummerSlam plans are set for him.
  • It's expected Lesnar will have title defenses against the likes of Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns, at the very least.
  • Chris Jericho was written off television on SmackDown Live this week but he is expected back this year.
  • After a brief push, it looks like WWE has no immediate plans for Luke Harper or, for that matter, Erick Rowan.
  • It looks like TJ Perkins will now only be known as TJP in WWE.
