Rumor Roundup (May 29, 2017): Jinder Mahal title win, John Cena return, Rusev, 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:

  • Though it's still very early, WWE has apparently been happy with the decision to make Jinder Mahal champion, specifically what it's done for YouTube and social media.
  • A John Cena tweet has led to speculation that he could make a surprise appearance on SmackDown Live next week. He's expected back on a more regular basis come July.
  • The Observer notes plans for Rusev seem to have changed and that's why we haven't seen him back as was expected recently.
  • It's still expected that Adam Cole will make his way to WWE sooner rather than later.
  • Tajiri is now officially done with WWE.
