Rumor Roundup (June 5, 2017): Jeff Hardy singles push, WWE ratings slump, 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 tag title change and the finish of the Hardys match at Extreme Rules could lead to a break-up, with Matt unhappy with Jeff’s high risk offense.
  • It doesn’t look like Cody Rhodes is headed back to Impact, as his wife indicates he’s fulfilled all his dates there and Ring of Honor and New Japan will be keeping him busy.
  • Even though it’s still a couple years away, WWE officials are worried their ratings slump will hurt their negotiating position on their next TV deal.
  • Seth Rollins is said to be up for the cover of WWE 2K18, which would break from the recent trend of using the game to push an older/returning star.
  • Vader appears to be planning on hanging up his boots for health reasons, per his latest Tweets.
