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 the Observer, Ring of Honor is interested in CM Punk for its show at Madison Square Garden next year but it’s considered a long shot to happen.
  • WrestleVotes notes that Stephanie McMahon’s announcement is likely the women’s pay-per-view show and says it will be happening in September in Long Island, New York.
  • Meanwhile, TicketDrew is saying the announcement could also be for women’s tag team titles.
  • Wrestling Standard claims WWE could also be announcing a women’s tag team tournament, which would take place at the PPV but could also take place sometime down the line.
  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter says James Ellsworth isn’t under contract to WWE at this time. However, Ellsworth tweeted “sometimes when you read the ‘news’ and you know it’s not 100-percent accurate, you just have to laugh at it. It’s unclear if that’s what he’s referencing but it seems likely.
