Rumor Roundup (Oct. 24, 2017): Jericho/Omega, WWE returns, Bischoff, Jarrett, 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:

  • Another, probably more likely reason for the Chris Jericho/Kenny Omega Twitter issues from this past weekend - Wrestling Inc says it may be to set up an angle for the Ring of Honor tournament on Jericho’s upcoming cruise.
  • Vince McMahon came up with the idea for Kurt Angle to replace Roman Reigns at TLC last Thursday, according to PWInsider. He was cleared on Friday, and the WWE promotional machine immediately went into action.
  • Reigns may be expected back before Survivor Series, but Wrestling Observer says there’s no timetable for Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas’ return from viral infection. They’ll be evaluated with Roman next Monday.
  • Eric Bischoff was in New York on Monday working on a WWE project, per PWInsider.
  • Jeff Jarrett missed an independent booking Saturday night in Canada after showing up in poor condition for the same promotion on Friday. Inc says fans walked out, and the company (RCW) announced Jarrett headed back to the U.S. “due to his own issues”.
