Rumor Roundup (Aug. 12, 2017): Dolph Ziggler, Chris Jericho return, Sheamus, 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:

  • Dolph Ziggler may be getting re-packaged soon, according to Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Live.
  • Chris Jericho mentioned on his podcast that he went to SmackDown to do a podcast with Breezango and film material for Southpaw Regional Wrestling and he was asked to do a one-off match and that's how his return happened.
  • Sheamus is likely going to film a movie soon, so there may be a Raw tag team title change coming soon.
  • Scott Dawson is expected to be out until December after getting surgery on his torn biceps.
  • There has been some talk of Gabe Sapolsky working with WWE in NXT but the Observer notes he was at the last tapings and talked about some ideas but is not officially working with the company.
