Rumor Roundup (Oct. 9, 2017): Owens/Zayn, Samoa Joe, Asuka, Summer Rae, 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:

  • Look for SmackDown to possibly build toward a Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn vs. Shane McMahon and AJ Styles match for Survivor Series.
  • When he returns from injury, Samoa Joe could be feuding with Braun Strowman and Finn Balor.
  • Asuka’s match at TLC will likely either be a squash of Emma or Alicia Fox, or a tag match where she teams with Bayley and Sasha Banks against Emma, Fox and Nia Jax.
  • Some social media posts, along with her absence from television and increased work outside the company, has led to increased speculation Summer Rae is done with WWE.
  • Evolve has been teasing a major change in the wake of their fallout with FloSports, and there’s talk it could involve an even closer relationship with WWE.
