Rumor Roundup (Oct. 19, 2018): Shane McMahon return, Evolution, Ronda Rousey on Total Divas, 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:

  • Shane McMahon’s return at SmackDown 1000 wasn’t just a one-time thing, says PW Insider. He’s apparently back on TV now and will be worked back into storylines going forward.
  • That site also says Madusa is scheduled for the Evolution pay-per-view.
  • Per the Observer, there is an idea within WWE to try to get Ronda Rousey on Total Divas due to viewership taking a dive.
  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter maintains that Impact Wrestling seems to be going with a worked shoot story with Austin Aries and Johnny Impact.
  • PCO has signed a deal with MLW, per PW Insider.
