Rumor Roundup (July 17, 2017): Reigns vs. Joe, Kurt Angle secret, Vince McMahon presence, 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:

  • Roman Reigns was planned to win this match against Samoa Joe to wrestle Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam not long ago, and there's some belief that's the case.
  • Kurt Angle's secret reveal is not expected to be Dixie Carter.
  • SI is saying Vince McMahon hasn't been appearing at WWE television tapings as much as he used to and he "doesn't have the presence he once did."
  • The speculation is WWE already has something worked out with Cris Cyborg for at least an appearance, and that's why she's feuding with Becky Lynch on Twitter.
  • According to Sports Illustrated, the deal in place for the Hardys to buy the rights to the Broken gimmick was for between $10-15,000, a non-disparagement clause with Reby Hardy (where she would fined for tweeting negatively about GFW), and a press release announcing the settlement came on good terms. The Hardys balked at the deal when Anthem asked for 50-percent of all revenue, including even on Jeff's music and art.
