New, comments
Jimmy Jacobs’ Instagram

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:

  • Pro Wrestling Sheet’s report on Jimmy Jacobs’ exit from WWE indicates his Instagram post with Bullet Club was “the final straw”, hinting that there were issues between the writer and others in management before that.
  • Once it became clear Neville would not be an option for Monday’s Cruiserweight title lumberjack match, the decision was made to have Kalisto win on Raw to take advantage of it being Eddie Guerrero’s birthday and use that to help get the new champ over.
  • PWInsider says the original plan for Luke Harper and Rowan’s new gimmick was to model them on Demolition, but it’s not clear “The Bludgeon Brothers” are part of that plan or a different one.
  • It’s also believed that the “2B” clue from Fashion Files was referring to the new team, but at this point, there don’t appear to be any plans to use Breezango’s comedy segments to set up angles or debut new teams.
  • Taya Valkyrie says she will be a part of Lucha Underground season four, if it happens. That’s lead to speculation there will be more stars working for Impact and LU should the El Rey show continue.
