Rumor Roundup (Sept. 20, 2017): Charlotte push, Paige return, WWE Starrcade, 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:

  • Don't be surprised if Charlotte wins the SmackDown women's title at Hell in a Cell and gets a big babyface push now that she's back and has good will from the situation with her dad.
  • Paige's return is being promoted like she is a free agent, and could end up on either Raw or SmackDown Live.
  • Starrcade isn't likely to be filmed for a Network special. Instead, WWE may be bringing back WCW event names simply as a way to boost live event business.
  • There's some concern within WWE of poor sales for Raw and SmackDown as far as tickets this week.
  • The word going around is Shayna Baszler has officially signed a contract with WWE.
