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:
- The Wrap has said WWE will make a decision on the Crown Jewel event by today, and an announcement could be coming very soon.
- Dean Ambrose turning on Seth Rollins was always in the plans but Wrestling Observer Live says it wasn’t supposed to happen until around Survivor Series and was moved up after the Roman Reigns announcement.
- They also say that only a small number of people within WWE knew about Reigns’ leukemia diagnosis before he revealed it on Raw, so the reaction on commentary and among the wrestlers was at least in part because they had just learned of it like the rest of us.
- The word is Ronda Rousey has input in all her promos, and even input in what Nikki Bella used against her in a promo on Raw this week.
- According to the Observer, Bobby Lashley is currently hurt, though it may not mean taking any time off.
