Rumor Roundup (May 4, 2015): SummerSlam main event, Daniel Bryan update, Damien Sandow gimmick, more!

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

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:

  • It looks like the plan for SummerSlam is still a triple threat with Seth Rollins defending the WWE world heavyweight championship against Roman Reigns and a returning Brock Lesnar.
  • WWE may address the injury situation with Daniel Bryan as early as tonight's episode of Raw.
  • Apparently the idea with Damien Sandow is to continue doubling people because the thought is that's what got him over. Not sure if that's true but apparently that's the feeling and it's what he'll be doing going forward, much like what we saw with Curtis Axel. I'll let you decide if that's a good idea or not.
  • Although it's taken longer than expected, Finn Balor and Charlotte are apparently both still on the short list of names expected to be called up to the main roster soon.
  • WWE has planned an "Appreciation Night" for Pat Patterson at Monday Night Raw tonight in Montreal but it appears to be a dark segment and won't be mentioned on the live broadcast.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
