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:

  • Dana White told TMZ he would be interested in booking Brock Lesnar vs. Jon Jones, but the expectation remains that Lesnar will come back to WWE.
  • WrestleVotes says there has been some discussion within WWE of moving NXT off Wednesday nights.
  • The Observer notes that Rey Mysterio’s injury isn’t serious and the belief is he won’t need surgery and may only miss a couple months.
  • According to PW Insider, Nigel McGuinness is expected to return to work for WWE soon.
  • When MLW returns to TV it will have a new name and will not debut on Saturdays on BeIN Sport but rather a primetime slot on a weekday on Fubo Sports Network, per Insider.
