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. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.
Rumors for the Day:
- No idea what this means or even could mean, but the Night of Champions card has apparently been "reworked" in some form or capacity. Considering they're giving away Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt and Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns on Raw next week, not to mention apparently merging the Nikki vs. Brie and AJ Lee vs. Paige stories, there might be fire to the smoke here.
- WWE is reporting on Jey Uso suffering a leg injury but it's kayfabe and he's fine.
- PW Insider has gone on record reporting that WWE is doing "early work" on a second Scooby Doo cartoon that would be ready by 2016.
- It's being said that WWE will be signing Willie Mack soon and he'll be reporting to NXT shortly. At the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla event this past weekend, the wrestlers all apparently gave him a tribute to say goodbye.
- Word going around is that TNA has made even more office cuts in the past week or so and uncertainty over the future of the company continues to affect morale.
