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:

  • Dave Meltzer recently noted on Twitter that while Brock Lesnar's contract with WWE expires in April, "there are clauses that keep it going through I think August."
  • According to PW Insider, Braun Strowman was sent home from the WWE holiday tour early due to illness. The Observer said it was the flu.
  • Paige is scheduled to be at Raw in Miami tonight, though it's unclear if she'll be used after her recent injury at a house show, per PW Insider.
  • There has been talk of Ethan Carter III possibly going to WWE in 2018.
