New, comments

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:

  • There are expected to be surprise entrants in the Greatest Royal Rumble match though some, like Rey Mysterio and Great Khali, have already been spoiled by advertisements making the rounds.
  • According to the Observer, all tickets for WWE Greatest Royal Rumble are gone, although it’s noted there were a lot of comps given out.
  • After rumors made the rounds that Mike Johnson reported Sasha Banks had her push halted over attitude issues, he said that wasn’t the case.
  • Chris Jericho told Chris Van Vliet he hopes to go back to New Japan in the future but there are no plans for it right now.
  • PW Insider notes Tessa Blanchard is in for Impact’s TV tapings this week and the promotion had been interested in her “dating back to last year.”
