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. We track rumor accuracy in a weekly feature called Rumor Look Back you can find here. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • Per one of John Pollock of POST Wrestling’s sources, prior to her injury the plan appeared to be for Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey to close the show at Survivor Series.
  • According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Rousey/Lynch is already in consideration for the main event, or at least to be one of two big matches at WrestleMania 35.
  • Observer Radio also brought our usual TakeOver rumor about NXT call-ups, saying a round could be coming next week after Survivor Series.
  • AJ Styles was replaced by Jeff Hardy on this week’s Mixed Match Challenge as Styles sold the effects of his SmackDown main event. It’s only planned as a one-time change, however, and AJ should be back as Charlotte’s partner for their next match.
  • Ric Flair was at SmackDown to film a new Table For 3 with Bob Orton and Harley Race, says PW Insider.
