Rumor Roundup (June 27, 2017): Lesnar on SmackDown, Alberto/Paige, Shaq, 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:

  • Brock Lesnar is the latest Raw star added to a SmackDown house show, as he’s set to face Baron Corbin on July 29 in Detroit.
  • Both Alberto El Patron and Paige took to Twitter to shoot down rumors they’ve broken up.
  • Jeff Jarrett is teasing a big name from Orlando for Slammiversary, and it’s expected to be Shaquille O’Neal.
  • Plans call for Great Balls of Fire to be an annual show for WWE, says Jerry Lawler, so get used to the name/come up with new jokes.
  • Io Shirai’s WWE debut will be delayed for “quite a while” according to Wrestling Observer due to neck injury she suffered in May and tried to treat with rest that was identified by WWE medical during her initial physical exam .
