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:

  • Ringside News claims The Rock vs. Roman Reigns was never discussed for WrestleMania 38 and is not the plan.
  • There’s already speculation that the “Supersized SmackDown” show could be a tryout for a third hour of SmackDown on FS1, with Dave Meltzer noting he wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case.
  • For what it’s worth, Karrion Kross seemed to hint in a recent interview with Table Talk that Scarlett Bordeaux will be joining him on Raw at some point in the near future.
  • Gable Steveson’s debut in WWE is tentatively set for next spring, according to the Observer.
  • Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The Young Bucks had a big hand in Bobby Fish getting signed to AEW.
