Rumor Roundup (Sept. 15, 2017): Vince McMahon bleeding, Mae Young Classic, Four Horsewomen angle, 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:

  • Vince McMahon taking a shoot headbutt from Kevin Owens and bleeding from his forehead was all planned out, per the Observer. The speculation is he bladed beforehand so that the headbutt would open him up.
  • The Observer also notes Kairi Sane over Toni Storm was the original plan for the final but they switched it to Shayna Baszler in part as a way to help promote the Four Horsewomen angle.
  • Regarding the Four Horsewomen angle, WWE apparently made the call to have the Mae Young Classic final be all about crowning Sane. The idea, then, is to do another angle later, though it's unclear when that may be.
  • Miz and Maryse kept their pregnancy news secret from everyone so they could use it as a surprise announcement on Raw.
  • Charlotte will be promoting her book in the coming months and is apparently off TV only due to creative reasons.
