Daniel Bryan WWE

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:

  • WWE has yet to sign Daniel Bryan to a new contract, says the Observer. They want to bring him back and it’s expected that he will re-sign.
  • It’s not expected that the cruiserweights will get a match at Money in the Bank.
  • Per the Observer, New Japan is trying to make Kazuchika Okada an “enduring legend,” and that includes breaking every championship record he can.
  • Chris Brookes turned down a U.K. deal with WWE, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
  • The word is that Impact vs. Ring of Honor angles will be happening after the Jericho Cruise, and possibly start there.
