Rumor Roundup (Sept. 2, 2017): Samoa Joe injury, Mae Young Classic plans, Rusev, 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:

  • PW Insider is reporting Samoa Joe was seen in Birmingham, Alabama earlier this week for treatment on his knee and his updated recovery time is 4-to-6 weeks.
  • Beth Phoenix and Madusa will be at the Mae Young Classic Finals, per PW Insider, but WWE has pulled a planned documentary on Madusa that was set to air. She also apparently filmed material for the shows that have already aired but none of it has been used.
  • Rusev did leave the country recently but the word is that was so he and Lana could film material for Total Divas.
  • According to the Observer, current plans call for the UK show to begin before the end of 2017.
  • The Observer is reporting Dr. Wagner Jr. was paid 4.5 million pesos (roughly 255K dollars) to lose his mask at TripleMania.
