Rumor Roundup (Oct. 23, 2018): Raw turns, Crown Jewel status, Bliss & Mysterio absences, Taker schedule, 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:

  • As you’d expect, Braun Strowman and Elias’ babyface turns on Raw were to account for losing Roman Reigns from the roster for now and Dean Ambrose going heel.
  • The Saudi ticket website handling local tickets for Crown Jewel has been telling fans “that WWE has not confirmed to them that the show will go on,” per Wrestling Observer.
  • Word is Alexa Bliss was injured on Saturday night in Hartford, but it’s not clear if she broke her nose (as some Twitter accounts claim) or suffered a concussion (as Wrestling Observer says they heard, but could not confirm). No word on her status for Sunday.
  • Rey Mysterio, on the other hand, is not injured. Multiple sources said his being taken off the house show circuit after Saturday’s event was just described to them as a change of plans.
  • Undertaker and Kane will be at Raw next Monday in Charlotte, says PW Insider.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you’d like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
