Rumor Roundup (April 19, 2017): Orton vs. Wyatt, Strowman vs. Reigns, Baron Corbin, 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 idea with the Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt match isn't to promote the idea of a title change as a selling point but the "House of Horrors" stipulation.
  • The stipulation the Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns match is likely to get is an Ambulance match.
  • The Observer notes that WWE is really high on Baron Corbin, perhaps even more so than Braun Strowman, and he is supposed to be a top star on the SmackDown side by the end of the year.
  • Sportskeeda and PW Torch are reporting Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis have signed with WWE and will be working on the SmackDown brand.
  • Simon Gotch will go by Simon Grimm going forward.
