Rumor Roundup (July 12, 2017): SummerSlam main event plans, Braun Strowman return, Mae Young Classic, 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 SummerSlam main event plan apparently changed recently, though it's unclear what it was changed to. Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar was the rumored match but it could be a triple threat or even Fatal 4-Way now.
  • Not surprisingly, Braun Strowman is expected back for Monday Night Raw next week.
  • There are expected to be multiple multi-person matches on the SummerSlam card, as well as two to three matches on the pre-show.
  • According to Squared Circle Sirens and the Observer, Shayna Baszler, Rachael Ellering, Santana Garrett, Renee Michelle, Barbi Hayden, Nicole Savoy, Mercedes Martinez, Marti Belle, and Ayesha Ray are all expected to be announced for the Mae Young Classic.
  • Kevin Kelly has left Ring of Honor to focus on New Japan Pro Wrestling.
