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:

  • The Observer has speculated that WWE could be turning Daniel Bryan heel in an attempt to hurt his mainstream value if he leaves later this year.
  • A SmackDown star is expected to win the men’s Royal Rumble.
  • Current advertisements call for current stars John Cena and Brock Lesnar to work the Barclays Center for Raw 25 while Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash, Jim Ross, and Jerry Lawler are all set for the Manhattan Center.
  • Speaking of Cena, PW Insider notes he’ll be working some Raw events after Royal Rumble leading up to WrestleMania 34.
  • An interesting tweet from Dave Meltzer mentioned a few people being up for a role as Commissioner on 205 Live but “nothing serious has taken place.”
