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:

  • Ronda Rousey is definitely doing something with WWE at some point, likely WrestleMania next year, and it could be a singles match against Charlotte.
  • Jinder Mahal vs. John Cena for the WWE championship has at least been talked about for SummerSlam.
  • The Observer notes Talking Smack wasn't cancelled because Vince McMahon didn't like the show but there was a segment he hated -- when New Day showed up on the show before ever appearing on SmackDown Live.
  • It's considered highly unlikely that Rey Mysterio will return to WWE right now, or anytime soon.
  • Now that Alberto El Patron is no longer a suspect in the domestic violence incident at the Orlando airport, it's expected he'll be reinstated by GFW.
