Rumor Roundup (May 18, 2015): Seth Rollins' Pedigree, Steve Austin WWE deal, Ryback injury, 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:

  • Seth Rollins using the Pedigree as a finish at Payback last night may not have been a one time thing.
  • Steve Austin's podcasts on the Network were popular enough that WWE badly wanted to bring him back for another to entice subscribers to stick around after the free month of May.
  • According to PW Insider, Ryback was getting checked out backstage for a legitimate rib injury and he may actually have been hurt in his match with Bray Wyatt at Payback.
  • Apparently there's been some talk of headlining the Elimination Chamber WWE Network special with the Intercontinental title match.
  • There's a rumor going around that WWE Hall of Famer Sunny may have signed a deal with Vivid to do adult films.
