Rumor Roundup (May 6, 2017): Broken Hardys, WWE title plans, Shinsuke Nakamura, more!

Shinsuke Nakamura WWE Network

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 Broken Hardys gimmick is being teased because WWE is close to a settlement with Anthem to buy the rights to it.
  • Jinder Mahal isn’t planned to win the WWE championship and his push in the main event may not even last all that long.
  • Speaking of that, Rusev is planned to enter the title picture, at least briefly, once he returns from his injury.
  • WWE is keeping Shinsuke Nakamura from working a match on TV to better build to a match with Dolph Ziggler at Backlash.
  • WWE appears to be planning monthly tapings for the UK show on the Network, according to the Observer.
