Rumor Roundup (May 8, 2017): Emma injury, Extreme Rules plans, El Patron/Paige, 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:

  • After Emma took a bump in the corner during her tag match at WWE’s Liverpool house show on Sunday, the match was stopped and she was helped to the back. Fans in attendance speculated she was seriously injured, but there’s been no official comment.
  • The finish of the Austin Aries/Neville match at Payback was changed at the last minute, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
  • That’s likely so the feud can continue. An Extreme Rules rematch is planned, possibly as a Triple Threat with TJP.
  • Paige and Alberto El Patron reportedly got in a pretty public backstage argument during El Patron’s first day at the last Impact tapings, but things appear to be smoothed over.
  • NXT’s Dylan Miley is now going by the name Lars Sullivan.
