Rumor Roundup (Oct. 7, 2016): Goldberg WWE return, Brock Lesnar match, WrestleMania 33, Vince McMahon upset, 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 Observer is reporting the Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar match is indeed on for Survivor Series and the biggest reason is because they wanted it close to the release of the WWE 2K17 video game.
  • It's also noted that it isn't happening at WrestleMania 33 because Lesnar's opponent is already decided for that show and they didn't want to change it.
  • Vince McMahon was apparently "very upset" with the ratings for Raw when it hit a record low up against the first Presidential debate, according to the Observer. That could be why there are changes coming.
  • Despite the situation with his stabbing story, AAA is expected to continue booking Alberto El Patron going forward.
  • Ricochet is apparently going to get a big push in New Japan going forward.
