Rumor Roundup (April 21, 2016): Roman Reigns title run, Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe, Payback tickets, 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:

  • Bullet Club or not, it doesn't look like there are plans for Roman Reigns to lose the WWE world heavyweight championship anytime soon.
  • NXT actually promoted a house show on its TV this week announcing a title match between Finn Balor and Samoa Joe while also saying you never know who might show up. That's led to obvious speculation that they may have something planned.
  • Tickets for the upcoming Payback pay-per-view are apparently moving well and WWE is expecting a sell out for what should be a bigger "B" show than usual.
  • Austin Aries apparently has a deal with NXT that allows him to take independent bookings outside of WWE.
  • It looks like Christy Hemme is done with TNA, as she hinted at on her Twitter.

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.
