Rumor Roundup (July 5, 2017): John Cena plans, Hype Bros breakup, Okada at Raw, 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 Rusev match at Battleground is a way to put John Cena over for a much bigger match currently planned for SummerSlam, though it's unclear who his opponent will be.
  • The battle royal spot does indeed look like the start of a break up between The Hype Bros.
  • Kazuchika Okada did indeed visit backstage at Monday Night Raw but he was only there to see friends.
  • According to PW Insider, there may be a couple of former WWE stars appearing at the GFW Impact tapings this week.
  • Apparently DeAngelo Williams only trained for three days to get ready for his match at Slammiversary. That explains why he almost hurt himself on the finish.
