Rumor Roundup (Sept. 9, 2016): Paige quitting WWE, Alberto Del Rio update, Cesaro vs. Sheamus, 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:

  • If FrontRowBrian is to be believed, Paige has quit WWE and she has hired legal representation to help get her out of her contract.
  • Super Luchas has reported that Alberto Del Rio will comment on his future in WWE and beyond at a press conference in Mexico City today. MLW would later say it may be cancelled.
  • Not surprisingly, the plan does appear to be to have Cesaro vs. Sheamus go the distance in their best-of-7 series with the final match happening at Clash of Champions.
  • Don't be surprised if Heath Slater and Rhyno win the SmackDown Live tag team title tournament.
  • Cody Rhodes can't use the "Rhodes" name if he's doing a television show, according to the Observer. There are apparently still talks going on with WWE, however.

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.
