Rumor Roundup (June 20, 2016): More veterans contacted, Money in the Bank’s main event, Eric Young, 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:

  • WWE’s timing of last night’s Money in the Bank main event was tied to the NBA game. They apparently wanted to get as much social media share as possible for the title changes.

  • For those who follow the betting lines for WWE PPV and how accurately they predict booking, there was a big last minute swing which made Seth Rollins a heavy favorite to beat Roman Reigns before the show.

  • According to Dave Meltzer, expect to see more of Eric Young in NXT. He’s “in” per the Observer, but probably waiting for the brand split call-ups to become a full-time player.

  • Finn Balor is apparently the person who reached out to Kota Ibushi to join the Cruiserweight Classic.
