Rumor Roundup (Dec. 6, 2017): Shane McMahon heel turn, NXT injuries, missing cruiserweights, 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:

  • The current angle with Shane McMahon going overboard with his punishment of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn could be to turn Shane heel.
  • PW Insider notes that both Aleister Black and No Way Jose have suffered injuries recently but neither are believed to be serious.
  • Gran Metallik and TJP have been off television of late because WWE has nothing for them, according to PW Insider.
  • Dutch Mantel is apparently on his way out of Impact Wrestling, and may have already been let go.
  • To that end, some "top of the card" names are expected to be leaving Impact Wrestling soon, per PW Insider.
