Rumor Roundup (July 13, 2017): Hardy/GFW deal, Dixie Carter on Raw, Mae Young Classic, more!

Impact Wrestling on YouTube

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:

  • According to PWInsider, the Hardys and GFW did have an agreement in principle which would have allowed Matt & Jeff to use the “Broken” gimmick in WWE, but Impact President Ed Nordholm has not signed the deal sent to Anthem by the Hardys lawyers.
  • Given Jeff Jarrett’s comments yesterday, it looks like Nordholm won’t sign, which will leave the Hardys no recourse but a lawsuit where they’ll likely claim their contracts were breached during Dixie Carter’s ownership of TNA.
  • Speculation Carter could appear on Raw in Nashville next Monday is heating up, with Dixie playing coy when asked about it in a recent interview.
  • When we learn the identities of the entire 32 woman Mae Young Classic field tonight, former TNA Knockout Marti Belle and current Shimmer champ Mercedes Martinez will be included, says Insider.
  • Jim Ross revealed Hall of Famer Alundra “Madusa” Blayze will be on the broadcast team for the women’s tournament, but neither JR, his announce desk partner Lita nor Blayze confirmed what her exact role will be.
