The Rumor Mill: Featuring Bret Hart, Kane, Future Guest Hosts and More.

Welcome to The Rumor Mill, I’m The Informant and I’ll be your host! Think you know what’s really going on in the wrestling world? Find the latest rumors doing the rounds here. Truth or fiction? You decide!
One of big rumors making the rounds lately is that Bret “Hitman” Hart may return to the WWE sometime in the future. It’s a rumor that many people have been talking about since Bret reemerged onto the wrestling scene when he made appearances for Ring of Honor in Chicago recently. Whenever asked about returning to the WWE, Bret will steer away from the question. Many believe that “The Hitman” really is returning to the WWE and it may be sooner than later.
Well, it looks like WWE has found a replacement for Lilian Garcia in the former of singer and actress Lauren Mayhew, who made her debut at the SmackDown tapings on Tuesday. It’s being reported that Mayhew will be the new ring announcer for SmackDown, while Justin Roberts is the most likely one to move to RAW to serve as the ring announcer there. The rumor going around about Mayhew’s contract with the WWE is that WWE offered to help her promote any future albums and/or movies/TV shows to help sign her to a contract.
The general feeling backstage is that Chris Masters will be a mainstay on WWE Superstars and will only make rare appearances on RAW. It’s rumored that they rehired Masters without really having a spot in mind for him on the roster. WWE is also trying to get a select number of Superstars from all three brands to be mainstays on the show as well. When it comes to ECW, the Superstars of that roster will probably appear regularly on both shows since they have a smaller roster. Some names from RAW, SmackDown, & ECW who are either going to remain mainstays or become mainstays are: Chris Masters, Primo, The Bella Twins (Brie & Nikki), Carlito, Paul Burchill, Katie Lea Burchill, Goldust, Tyler Reks, Santino Marella, Matt Hardy, Dolph Ziggler, Charlie Haas, Finlay, & Kane.
It’s being said that WWE is unsure of where to put Kane on the SmackDown roster now that The Great Khali is on the injured list as they intended for that feud to go on a little longer than it did. The idea for a run with the Unified Tag Team Titles has been tossed around, but nothing serious has been discussed. It looks as though the plan for now is to have Kane compete on WWE Superstars until they come up with a better idea for him.
Allegedly, Vince McMahon is not too happy about the RAW rating this week as the show drew the same 3.4 number that it did last week and Vince feels that the rating should be going up due to the celebrity Guest Hosts. It’s being reported that Vince is willing to pay quite the sum of money to get particular celebrities that are more of the “A-List” status like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Drew Barrymore, or Scarlett Johansson and that, by doing so, it may edge RAW up in the rating. Vince is looking to utilize an upcoming three-hour edition of RAW to highlight one of the major Hollywood stars. As it stands, it looks like the November 16 show in New York City might be the three-hour special, though nothing is confirmed.
With the “limited” roster on ECW, the rumor going around is that we may see Bryan Danielson and/or Nigel McGuinness make their debut on the show in the near future. No matter what brand they are on, it is expected that the two former ROH stars will be a part of the main roster by the end of the year.

Santino should be turn heel again. hopefully it will be Batista, John Cena and Maria will turn heel real soon because Chris Jericho should go back to a face and Drew McIntyre would ready to be put in the Intercontinental Title Hunt because McIntyre been attacking R-Truth recently.
