Rumor Roundup (Sept. 23, 2016): Women headlining WWE PPV, Emma on Raw, SmackDown group, 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:

  • WWE has apparently kicked around the idea of having the women headline a PPV, possibly with Sasha Banks and Bayley like they did in NXT.
  • Emma being brought to Raw doesn't mean she'll be on that brand when she returns but "it does look likely," per the Observer.
  • There's apparently been talk of doing a "Varsity Club/shooters" group on SmackDown involving Shelton Benjamin, Jack Swagger, and Dolph Ziggler, according to the Observer.
  • There is apparently another serious possible bidder for TNA and if they get the company they'll be looking to make a big splash in pro wrestling.
  • In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter it's noted that Devon Dudley may take a job as an agent with WWE and Bubba Ray would work the independent scene as a singles star.
