Rumor Roundup (June 9, 2017): Brock Lesnar plans, Great Balls of Fire, Lana, 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 scheduled to wrestle Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, and Finn Balor in title matches leading up to the planned Roman Reigns match at WrestleMania 34.
  • Great Balls of Fire is likely to feature multiple rematches from Extreme Rules.
  • Lana's role on SmackDown Live will be something similar to what WWE was doing with Eva Marie before she left.
  • The reason Sasha Banks is working on 205 Live is to draw interest to that show and the Observer notes there's an idea for more women to appear on it for the same reason.
  • According to the Observer, the Ric Flair “30 for 30” documentary is planned to run in January of next year.
