Rumor Roundup (June 29, 2017): Ball family plans, Wyatt backstory, SRW, backstage at SmackDown, 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 Ball Family was supposed to remain at ringside and be involved in the six-man tag which followed their Miz TV segment on Monday, according to Wrestling Observer, but that plan was scrapped after LaMelo’s “inappropriate language” into a live microphone.
  • WWE brought in a child actor to film some scenes as a young Bray Wyatt, says PWInsider. No word yet what they’re for or how they’ll be used.
  • Insider also reports more Southpaw Regional Wrestling footage was recently shot, including new characters played by The New Day, Seth Rollins and Rhyno.
  • Tyson Kidd and Rusev were said to be backstage at SmackDown on Tuesday, supporting reports Kidd will be taking on a non-wrestling role soon and further confounding Rusev fans.
  • Lisa Marie Varon, aka former WWE Women’s champ Victoria, was also in San Diego for SmackDown and posted on Instagram that she wanted to go backstage to congratulate the Money in the Bank participants but “the office” wouldn’t let her.
