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:

  • According to sources of Pro Wrestling Sheet’s Ryan Satin, Rusev being taken out and then added back to Undertaker’s match at Greatest Royal Rumble was just a case of Vince McMahon changing his mind and had nothing to do with the TMZ interview.
  • WWE Network’s sign-up page features an ad for Greatest Royal Rumble which pictures Rey Mysterio, seemingly confirming reports of his involvement. Shane McMahon, Mark Henry, and The Great Khali are also officially unannounced talent shown in the promo image.
  • Brie Bella used an Instagram story to shoot down a People report she’s furious with John Cena over the end of his relationship with Nikki, saying “I’ll always love [Cena] like a brother… He’ll always be family. My heart is hurting for he and my sister.”
  • Big Cass is being considered for a big push in 2018, with a feud with AJ Styles possible after he works with Daniel Bryan.
  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer speculated Nikki Cross was not called up with the rest of SAnitY because the NXT Women’s roster is lacking in experienced talent to work with Shayna Baszler and Kairi Sane.
