Rumor Roundup (Oct. 13, 2018): WWE Saudi Arabia show, Kurt Angle plans, Becky Lynch injury, 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. We track rumor accuracy in a weekly feature called Rumor Look Back you can find here. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez said the majority of the talent in WWE doesn’t want to go to Saudi Arabia for the Crown Jewel show but the office does want to go.
  • PW Insider says Kurt Angle is scheduled for Raw next week and looks to be back as a regular on television.
  • Becky Lynch is currently working with a “cracked jaw,” says the Observer.
  • Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the plan was always to have Daniel Bryan beat The Miz in a very short match at Super Show-Down so they could use it in promos later.
  • Punishment Martinez has signed with WWE and will start at the Performance Center this month, says PW Insider.
