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.
Rumors for the Day:
- John Cena’s role at WrestleMania 36 is already “locked in,” says the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
- Per PW Insider, Big Show is scheduled to return to Raw next week.
- According to the Observer, Matt Hardy’s return was a change in plans that came about because the ratings were good for his segment with Randy Orton last week and enough wrestlers are unavailable that they need to use him. They also say that’s why Big Show is coming back next week.
- Cathy Kelley gave her notice weeks ago, and WWE decided to respect her desire to leave, says Insider.
- On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez mentioned NXT wrestlers being told to lay it in, meaning work more physical matches.
