New, 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:

  • WWE apparently has no plans for Kurt Angle to return to the ring any time soon.
  • Along with the Brock Lesnar/UFC talk, there’s been increased reports WWE will have him drop the Universal title at SummerSlam
  • Bray Wyatt’s wins over Seth Rollins are so he’s ready as an opponent for old rival Roman Reigns in the event WWE puts Raw’s top prize back on The Big Dog next month.
  • Rey Mysterio has been offered a GFW contract, says PWInsider.
  • Regarding the nasty back-and-forth between AAA booker Vampiro and Taya and John Morrison after Sexy Star won the title Taya was stripped of, word is that while the decision came from the promotion’s owners, the way it went down wasn’t surprising to others who’ve had issues with Vampiro in the past.
