Rumor Roundup (Oct. 10, 2016): Lesnar/Goldberg, Mania plans for Shane, Strowman’s first challenge, 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:

  • The set-up for Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar may be Shane McMahon signing Goldberg to battle Brock as his proxy. A Lesnar win would lead to Shane facing Brock himself at WrestleMania.

  • Braun Strowman’s squashes could be leading to the debut of a former NXT champ on the main roster, as plans have Samoa Joe eventually (probably in December) answering Strowman’s demands for better competition.

  • While she may be pregnant, PWInsider reports Tough Enough winner Sara Lee was let go from WWE Developmental because she wasn’t progressing in the ring.

  • Noam Dar is expected to debut on Raw tonight, and start full-time with the cruiserweights.

  • Lucha Underground execs at New York Comic-Con were touting an upcoming live tour.
