Rumor Roundup (Aug. 6, 2016): Nikki Bella comeback, WWE returns, Ric Flair status, Heath Slater, more!

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

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:

  • Apparently part of the reason the stars WWE has brought back for the New Era have been mid-card level guys is because the money offers have been low.
  • While there's apparently been some talk of bringing Ric Flair back to TV, the Observer is reporting he "no longer has a contractual affiliation with WWE."
  • Heath Slater may actually end up going to EVOLVE for a show or two but it would only be to advance his current story of being a free agent.
  • The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes "the impression we have is MVP will not be coming in," even though some have said it could still happen.

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.
