Rumor Roundup (Oct. 19, 2017): More WWE exits, Taker/Kane, Nia Jax, Daniel Bryan, 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:

  • Dave Meltzer confirmed earlier reports of more WWE talents looking to leave the company.
  • Kane’s return has been in the works for a few months, according to PWInsider, but he’s not expected to stick around for long. Current plans call for him to be on Raw for roughly three weeks after TLC.
  • That makes Kane unlikely for Survivor Series, and the “Pro Wrestling Votes” Twitter account (which has led the way on the Neville and Nia Jax stories) also says The Undertaker will not be involved in the angle with The Shield there, either.
  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, it was reported Nia Jax wanted to face Asuka at TLC. The decision to go with Emma instead may have factored into her alleged frustration with creative.
  • says they think Daniel Bryan will re-sign with WWE.
