Rumor Roundup (Aug. 19, 2017): Undertaker, Ric Flair update, Floyd Mayweather retirement, 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:

  • A photo started making the rounds claiming Undertaker was on a plane headed to New York yesterday. Make of that what you will.
  • The Observer reports that Ric Flair was given an external pacemaker and his heart is beating at normal levels but he's battling an infection and still on kidney dialysis. He is still in critical condition but doing better than he was before.
  • Floyd Mayweather is saying he will retire following his fight with Conor McGregor on Aug. 26. WWE has been trying to work with both for some time.
  • Adam Cole is expected to debut at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III tonight.
