Rumor Roundup (Aug. 4, 2014): Raw, Daniel Bryan return, Hulk Hogan last match, Cesaro & Paul Heyman, more!

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:

  • According to the Wrestling Observer there is "talk of bringing back the combined Raw/SmackDown "supershow" tapings next year. That doesn't make a lot of sense considering the brand split is dead, but there you go.
  • The date WWE is working with internally regarding Daniel Bryan's return is the Royal Rumble. The hope is he will be able to return for that show.
  • There was some talk of using the attempted robbery at Bryan's home in WWE storylines but that obviously never happened. It may be something they reference on TV later on, but it's most likely not something they are going to use.
  • Hulk Hogan is back to openly talking about wanting one more match. He wants to work with John Cena before retiring. It still doesn't look like WWE is going to clear him to work said match, however. Then again, times have been getting desperate lately.
  • For those of you upset that Cesaro broke away from Paul Heyman in such a creatively lazy manner, don't worry, it's said that there are plans regarding the two in the future.
