Rumor Roundup (May 2, 2017): Strowman injury, Reigns plans, U.S. 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:

  • Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet says his sources tell him the Braun Strowman injury announced on Raw is “part of the storyline and not legit.”
  • Which is in line with an earlier report from Sportskeeda that Extreme Rules will feature a Strowman/Roman Reigns ambulance match to blow-off their feud.
  • It’s expected that Kevin Owens will regain the United States title tonight on SmackDown.
  • Adam Cole’s Ring of Honor (ROH) contract expired on April 30. It’s expected we’ll know more about his future plans this month.
  • Summer Rae was reportedly in Sacramento at the same time as Raw. While she obviously wasn’t used, it is believed she’ll be back with WWE soon.
