Rumor Roundup (May 25, 2017): WWE interest in ‘Broken’, Lesnar feuds, Orton absence, 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:

  • While WWE would use the “Broken” Hardy gimmick if Matt gains the rights to it, Wrestling Observer says they have told Anthem they’re not interested in it because they don’t want to set a precedent of buying creative.
  • It’s expected Brock Lesnar will have matches with most, if not all, of the men in the Extreme Rules Fatal 5Way match between now and WrestleMania 34.
  • PWInsider reports Randy Orton is off house shows the next couple of weekends, but he will be working Tuesday tapings.
  • It’s still possible Rusev could be added to the Money in the Bank ladder match next month, if he’s cleared - and WWE wants to go that direction.
  • Mike Bennett & Maria Kanellis are still talking to WWE and could sign soon.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
