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 decision to have Sasha Banks defeat Nia Jax at Fastlane apparently came late, and Banks was supposed to use the ropes to pin Jax.
- WWE’s 2017 draft will be limited to a handful of picks the General Managers can make from their rival brand or NXT. Champions will be off limits.
- While the current thinking is the Hardys will only be in Ring of Honor for a month or so, Bully Ray’s deal’s been in the works for a while and, according to PWInsider, ROH should be “his priority going forward”.
- Impact officials reportedly had multiple issues with Konnan at this weekend’s tapings, including showing up late and yelling at wrestlers backstage.
- Spike TV officials deny they’re talking to Jeff Jarrett about Impact Wrestling returning to the channel in the U.S.
