Rumor Roundup (Aug. 16, 2017): Ric Flair, Baron Corbin cash-in, Naomi title run, 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:

  • WWE apparently didn't air the Table for 3 with Ric Flair, Sting, and Ricky Steamboat after Raw this week due to Flair's hosptilization. He remains in critical condition following surgery.
  • The speculation now is WWE lost faith in Baron Corbin, maybe due in part to losing so badly in verbal battles with John Cena and social media spats with Mojo Rawley.
  • Sportskeeda is saying there are no plans for Naomi to lose the SmackDown women's title in 2017.
  • Lana is stepping back to be a manager so she can continue training to improve her wrestling.
  • TJP is apparently dealing with an injury.
