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:

  • Karrion Kross, Scarlett & Shotzi Blackheart were backstage at Raw last night. PW Insider says they were working dark matches so WWE officials could make decisions about potential call-ups. That trio and Bronson Reed had similar “tryouts” recently.
  • Vince McMahon is planning a visit to the Performance Center to scout talent, per Fightful Select. The Chairman will most likely be in Orlando on Thursday
  • According to that site, Bruce Prichard and John Laurinaitis have made similar trips to the PC in recent weeks.
  • Fightful also reports WWE’s firing of writer Kenice Mobley wasn’t because of the fan backlash to her comments, but because wrestlers and staff felt disrespected by her comments. Talent they spoke to said it wasn’t unusual for writers to come in with no wrestling knowledge, but most make an effort to learn.
  • Based on the above post-Dynamite photo Jungle Boy tweeted, it certainly appears he and Anna Jay are an item.
