Rumor Roundup (June 20, 2017): Punjabi Prison, Corbin plans, Miz/Maryse split, Shelton Benjamin, 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 Randy Orton/Jinder Mahal feud looks like it’s going to be a trilogy - blown off in a Punjabi Prison match at Battleground.
  • It’s believed Baron Corbin will cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase on whatever babyface eventually beats Mahal and then feud with that person - possibly John Cena.
  • Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas will stick with Miz as “The Entourage” going forward, and that may be because he’s (kayfabe) splitting with Maryse.
  • Now that he’s cleared from his shoulder injury, Pro Wrestling Sheet says Shelton Benjamin is in talks to re-sign with WWE and likely headed to SmackDown.
  • Three Impact producers - Al Snow, Pat Kenney (the former Simon Diamond) and Shane Helms - were let go in what PWInsider called a cost-cutting move.
