Rumor Roundup (Aug. 1, 2016): Heyman’s status, Del Rio staying, Strowman plans, more!

New, comments

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:

  • It looks like Braun Strowman may continue to win squash matches to build him up in the coming weeks.

  • According to Dave Meltzer on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Roderick Strong is almost certainly going to WWE.

  • Lashley was pulled from some bookings in Mexico & Puerto Rico, reportedly because with his new contract, TNA controls his outside appearances and significantly raised his price (and with it, their percentage).

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.
