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 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:

  • Daniel Bryan told BT Sport that he will be a part-time wrestler when he signs his next contract, which is coming up soon.
  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that Pat McAfee will be off TV “for a while,” maybe as far out as spring and it was a WWE call.
  • They also say NXT is being written with a long term vision in mind with rare changes, unlike Raw and SmackDown which change often leading into the show.
  • The Observer says the Slammy Awards this year were determined by a legitimate fan vote, at least for the major categories.
  • There’s talk that Rush and Dragon Lee have re-signed with Ring of Honor.
