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:

  • There's some talk that Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns could have been moved up to SummerSlam as a way to get the Universal title back on television each week due to low ratings.
  • The reason Enzo Amore is making comments towards Conor McGregor and he's being used in the angle is because WWE is trying to get in on the Mayweather-McGregor fight promotion.
  • Kurt Angle is still expected to be the legend attached to this year's WWE 2K18 video game.
  • Rusev is scheduled for SmackDown house shows this weekend, so he may return to action there.
  • John Cena will also be working Raw house shows as a way to boost business there, and that's part of the "free agent" angle.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
