Rumor Roundup (April 10, 2017): Payback main event, Shake-up plans, Flair, 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:

  • Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman is set to headline Payback.
  • Raw’s current roster has been told to plan on showing up on this week’s SmackDown, says PWInsider, seemingly confirming the idea the “Superstar Shake-Up” will be a two night affair.
  • The Alexa Bliss/Charlotte trade is said to be one of the most locked in trades for the “Shake-Up”.
  • Pro Wrestling Sheet has a new story of Ric Flair being thrown out of a bar in Indiana, allegedly after only being there for five minutes, for insulting the bartender.
  • According to Sean Waltman, Big Show was angry after the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33 - likely because his showdown with Braun Strowman didn’t get more time in the spotlight.
