Rumor Roundup (Aug. 8, 2016): Conor McGregor in WWE, Bray Wyatt injury, Paige status, 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:

  • The Observer is reporting Conor McGregor's comments on WWE is not an angle to lead to an appearance but the fact that it's been played up so big by everyone in the company could mean they do something with it down the line.
  • While Bray Wyatt isn't missing any time due to his ankle injury, WWE is likely going to keep his matches relatively short to help with the healing process.
  • While her mother is fighting back against dirt sheets, there have been various rumors floating around, most attributed to the Observer, that Paige's future in WWE is of concern thanks to behind-the-scenes goings on. Either way, her current absence is related only to her injury situation.
  • Some new advertising has Dean Ambrose working with AJ Styles and Randy Orton working Bray Wyatt post-SummerSlam, leading to the obvious speculation that could be the direction for all four.
  • It doesn't look like Zack Sabre Jr. will be signing with WWE at this time.
