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 mil.

John Cena is not advertised for dates after the April 9 Raw in New Orleans, and isn’t featured on promotional materials for SummerSlam or Survivor Series, leading to speculation he may be focusing on movie and TV work after WrestleMania.

Drew McIntyre is back working out at the Performance Center, says PW Insider. The site speculates he’s on target for a return by WrestleMania.

Insider also says that word backstage at Wednesday’s taping was Bobby Fish will be getting knee surgery in Birmingham, Alabama this week.

Rey Mysterio’s arm injury is not believed to be a complete biceps tear. As mentioned here before, it’s still believed he’ll be meeting with WWE about a return despite the injury.

Twitter user BeltFanDan shared a design for the rumored WWE Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles he says have been confirmed by “a few legit sources”.

ne of those happened during the episodes NXT filmed on Mar. 7 at Full Sail Live in Winter Park, Florida. WWE’s black-and-yellow brand is putting the finishing touches on the card for their big pre-WrestleMania live special, TakeOver: New Orleans, so everyone knew there would be major happenings on Wednesday night. No one was expecting the announcement of a secondary men’s singles title – and especially not a brand new belt – though.

That’s what we got, when General Manager William Regal announced the NXT North American championship. The new strap will be awarded to the winner of a six-man ladder match which will take place on Sat., April 7 in Smoothie King Center. The spoilers don’t stop there, either. WWE.com’s story on the new title includes the names of the men who’ll take part in that ladder match, and it includes two of their newest members of the roster… EC3 and Ricochet.

And, yes, that’s how they’ve been announced.

Those two will battle Adam Cole, Killian Dain, Velveteen Dream and Lars Sullivan, as each man tries to climb the ladder and grab the new belt.
