Rumor Roundup (Aug. 5, 2017): Bayley injury, John Cena & Randy Orton, WWE UK stars, 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:

  • The current expectation is that Bayley is going to be removed from the Raw women's championship match at SummerSlam and they'll figure out a new contender on Raw next Monday.
  • Randy Orton and John Cena are missing some house shows but aren't expected to miss TV anytime soon.
  • The Observer is noting that Tyler Bate, Trent Seven, Wolfgang, Pete Dunne, and Mark Andrews are going to be brought to the States for WWE work in a few weeks, though it's unclear what that will be.
  • WWE apparently pulled its contract offer for Io Shirai due to injury concerns.
  • Moose has apparently signed a three year extension with GFW.
