Rumor Roundup (May 24, 2017): Braun Strowman return, Money in the Bank ladder match plans, 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:

  • Braun Strowman's return is expected for mid-July.
  • Shinsuke Nakamura is the early favorite to win the men's Money in the Bank ladder match.
  • The obvious speculation is that whoever doesn't win the number one contender match for the SmackDown women's championship next week will be in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match.
  • Dave Meltzer made mention on Twitter that the women's tournament is named the Mae Young Classic at least partially for Stephanie McMahon, who was close to Mae.
  • Ricky Morton has been doing some coaching at the WWE Performance Center.
