Rumor Roundup (June 14, 2017): John Cena plans, Money in the Bank winner, Lesnar-Joe, 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:

  • The Observer has noted John Cena vs. Roman Reigns is not the current plan for SummerSlam.
  • As for Cena's status as a "free agent," apparently the reason that's being done is so he can appear on both Raw and SmackDown Live because he's one of the only actual needle moving stars WWE has.
  • It does look like the plan is for Shinsuke Nakamura to win the Money in the Bank briefcase.
  • That the Brock Lesnar-Samoa Joe brawl is doing so well on YouTube has become a topic of discussion within WWE, and there could be an even bigger angle set to follow it.
  • PW Insider noted that there was talk American Alpha would return to SmackDown Live this week with a big angle to reintroduce them. That obviously didn't happen, but that would seem to indicate where WWE is at on the team right now.

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.
