Rumor Roundup (Sept. 1, 2017): WWE Hall of Fame 2018, Baron Corbin heat, Asuka, 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:

  • According to the Observer, Batista's name has been floated as a possible headliner for the WWE Hall of Fame next year.
  • Although there have been rumors Baron Corbin failed to win the WWE title on his Money in the Bank cash-in due to John Cena not seeing him as a top guy or issues with his Twitter, the Observer is saying neither is the case but it was something else outside the right from weeks ago, though exactly what wasn't specified.
  • When Asuka makes her way up to the main roster after healing from her injury, she's expected to get a big push with focus on her undefeated streak.
  • There's at least been a suggestion, per the Observer, that the winner of the Mae Young Classic be crowned new NXT women's champion.
  • GFW signed a new deal with Pop TV to air Impact on the channel throughout 2018.
