Rumor Roundup (July 4, 2016): Brock Lesnar SummerSlam opponent, Roman Reigns heel turn, 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 is waiting for the outcome of Brock Lesnar's UFC 200 fight against Mark Hunt to determine who his opponent will be at SummerSlam this year.
  • Roman Reigns is not expected to turn heel anytime soon, and the approach to his character -- that he's polarizing -- will stay the same once he returns.
  • There was an image going around showing a planned WWE 24 special on Reigns but that's been debunked and there is nothing to that.
  • Apollo Crews went through and deleted his old tweets because fans were bringing to light some unflattering things he's said about fellow WWE stars, some of which caught their attention. It doesn't look like there's any real issue, but he did lose his "verified" status.
  • Sexy Star from Lucha Underground is apparently saying she's going into boxing soon.
