Rumor Roundup (Aug. 6, 2015): John Cena vs. Seth Rollins, Green Arrow, SummerSlam, Lana plans, 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:

  • There's apparently some speculation that the winner of the John Cena vs. Seth Rollins title vs. title match at SummerSlam will vacate the US title.
  • It looks like WWE may do a deal where Neville wrestles in place of Stephen Amell against Stardust at SummerSlam and The Green Arrow simply gets involved in the action so they don't have to try to book an actual match.
  • Apparently the long term plan is still for Lana to drop the Russian accent, although it's not known how they'll do it.
  • Apparently there were rumors going around that WWE has been in talks with Destinatin America but PW Insider is reporting that there's nothing to them.
  • Morale in Lucha Underground is high after the reception to Ultima Lucha was overwhelmingly positive. That said there are still obstacles for season two and it's unclear if a deal will get done but the hope is it will.

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.
