Rumor Roundup (Aug. 15, 2017): Ric Flair surgery, El Patron fallout, Enzo turn, Cyborg/Lynch, 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:

  • Ric Flair was hospitalized due to several different medical issues he’s been dealing with - not just his heart, according to PWInsider.
  • His surgery Monday was not cardiac-related, according to his management, and messages from Gene Okerlund point to it having been a procedure on his Colon.
  • There’s talk of Enzo Amore turning on Big Show and reuniting with Big Cass at SummerSlam.
  • GFW is in the process of changing all their main event plans from Destination X through Bound for Glory as a result of the decision to strip Alberto El Patron of the World championship.
  • Cris Cyborg is unhappy WWE didn’t do anything with the angle she and Becky Lynch were trying to start on Twitter, and is insinuating Ronda Rousey killed it so she wouldn’t wrestle for WWE before Rousey.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
