Rumor Roundup (July 28, 2016): Lesnar/Orton, Melina return, Cody Rhodes ROH, 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:

  • Brock Lesnar is expected to work the go home show for SummerSlam, on August 15 in Corpus Christi. Next week and that episode of Raw may be his only appearances before facing Randy Orton.

  • Speaking of which, it’s said plans still call for Brock to win that match, but that’s far from set in stone.

  • Nia Jax legitimately bloodied up her “local competitor” opponent on Raw, but there’s reportedly no concern about the incident backstage, as it’s been written off as nerves for her big debut.

  • Cody Rhodes told a fan on Twitter he’s working with Ring of Honor for more than just Final Battle, and used Adam Cole’s catchphrase to do so, leading to speculation he could get involved with the Bullet Club.

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.
