Rumor Roundup (Aug. 2, 2017): John Cena plans, Becky Lynch injury, Great Khali, 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:

  • It seems the original plan was for Baron Corbin to interfere in the John Cena vs. Shinsuke Nakamura match, leading to Nakamura winning and setting up a match between Corbin and Cena. Instead, they decided to have Shinsuke win clean.
  • Not surprisingly, then, Cena vs. Corbin may be the plan for SummerSlam before Cena moves over to Raw.
  • There are continued rumors going around that Becky Lynch is dealing with some sort of injury but she may simply be banged up.
  • Great Khali has been moved to the Alumni section on the WWE website, so he may not be appearing on TV again after all.
  • Brandi Rhodes has apparently been removed from the GFW roster and is no longer with the company.

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.
