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:
- Jason Jordan found out about his role in the Kurt Angle paternity story last week, according to Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Prior to that he was expecting a new American Alpha push to start soon.
- The Observer also says Jordan was chosen over his tag partner Chad Gable at least in part as a rib on Angle for his history of dating black women.
- WWE United Kingdom champion Pete Dunne is taking bookings for the Fall. Combined with no recent mentions of taping, that probably means plans for a Network UK show have been pushed further back.
- An appearance by Cris Cyborg in relation to her Twitter beef with Becky Lynch could be how UFC finally pays WWE back for letting Brock Lesnar work UFC 200 last Summer.
- MMA fighter (and Horsewoman) and Mae Young Classic entrant Shayna Bazler has filed for a trademark on her “Queen of Spades”nickname, per PWInsider. That’s especially noteworthy as most feel WWE will try to sign her to a long-term deal coming out of the tournament.
