Rumor Roundup (Nov. 8, 2017): Raw/SmackDown invasions, Chris Jericho, WWE title, 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:

  • WWE is expected to have SmackDown stars invade Raw next week before Raw stars invade SmackDown the next night.
  • Per the Observer, Chris Jericho got the idea to work in New Japan against Kenny Omega from watching the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor story play out.
  • It's also being said Jericho is doing this as a one-shot deal.
  • There's already plenty of speculation that Jinder Mahal could win the WWE title back from AJ Styles when WWE tours India in December.
  • PW Insider notes Hideo Itami is expected to be called up to the main roster "very soon" and he's headed for 205 Live, so he'll be a cruiserweight.
