Rumor Roundup (Aug. 8, 2015): Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar stipulation, Sheamus injury, Eva Marie, more!

New, comments

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 some word going around that the Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar match at SummerSlam may get a retirement stipulation added to it.
  • The rumor making the rounds is that Sheamus suffered an injury on Raw that may have been a concussion, or at least a scare, and that's why he was pulled from the Australian tour.
  • It looks like Eva Marie will have a match on the NXT Takeover: Brooklyn card. That should be fun, considering the crowd.
  • Apparently WWE asked UFC for permission to use the clip of Ronda Rousey paying tribute to Roddy Piper at UFC 190 on Raw this past week and were given the go ahead.
  • WWE is apparently super high on Apollo Crews, so expect him to be fast tracked to the top in NXT.
