Rumor Roundup (April 5, 2018): Taker/Cena plans, The Rock at ‘Mania, Jarrett’s future, Stone Cold, more!

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:

  • After reiterating that their sources tell them Undertaker will be at WrestleMania 34, PW Insider’s latest says it’s “very possible” there won’t be a match between Taker and John Cena at the show, with the two instead having a “‘face off’ in a non-official capacity”.
  • The sites sources say they definitely expect something between Taker and Cena, though, because WWE wouldn’t have had Cena do all his promos on Undertaker for no payoff.
  • Sports Illustrated claims a planned WrestleMania musical segment with numerous legends, including Jeff Jarrett, involved with Elias has been scrapped because WWE couldn’t get a commitment from The Rock, who would have been “the centerpiece of the segment”.
  • There’s talk going around that Jarrett is a candidate to replace Daniel Bryan as General Manager of SmackDown.
  • The WrestleVotes Twitter account says they’ve heard Stone Cold Steve Austin could be inducting Kid Rock into the WWE Hall of Fame on Friday night.
