Rumor Roundup (June 16, 2016): WWE PPV plans, NXT call ups, Finn Balor, The Wyatt Family return, 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:

  • According to the Observer, no sources in WWE have confirmed the idea of the company running 20 PPV shows a year for Raw and SmackDown but none have denied the story either.
  • While it's expected that there will be plenty of NXT call ups to accommodate the upcoming brand split, apparently nothing is finalized just yet, according to the Observer.
  • One reason Finn Balor's call up may have been delayed is because of all the returns still to come in WWE, like Randy Orton, The Wyatt Family, and Neville.
  • Speaking of which, The Wyatt Family are expected back before Orton and it's likely that's coming as early as next week.
  • Shinsuke Nakamura could very well get a run with the NXT title before he's called up to the main roster.
