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:

  • Rey Mysterio could still end up eventually signing with Impact, according to Konnan.
  • Dolph Ziggler’s current routine of mocking entrances is leading up to a feud with Bobby Roode. The former NXT champ is being held off television until that program starts, likely around Hell in a Cell.
  • WWE’s use of the Starrcade name is designed to boost ticket sales for the Greensboro, North Carolina house show, and specifically to counter the annual WrestleCade festival in nearby Winston-Salem that weekend.
  • Emma’s absence from Raw this week was because she stayed in Australia to visit family after the brand’s tour, says PWInsider.
  • There’s increased talk that Lucha Underground will not be picked up for a fourth season and the upcoming Ultima Lucha Tres will be the end of the show/promotion.
