Rumor Roundup (June 27, 2016): Brock Lesnar schedule, WWE brand split plans, NXT call ups, 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:

  • There's some word going around that Brock Lesnar may be scheduled for the WWE draft show on July 19.
  • According to PW Insider, although there were originally plans to have the women's champion on just one show after the WWE brand split, it now looks like the women's division will be split between Raw and SmackDown (which is in line with a previous report from Wrestling Observer we told you about last week).
  • Part of how they'll support that is by calling up multiple women from NXT, with names like Bayley, Carmella, and Nia Jax having been talked about.
  • According to the Observer, Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka will be at WWE television tapings this week but if they're used it will likely only be in a dark match.
  • Moose may not be coming to WWE after all, as has been rumored for some time.

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.
