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:

  • Vince McMahon is a big fan of Becky Lynch’s recent work, says, and has even used her as an example when telling other talent to grab the brass ring.
  • According to Ringside News, Crown Jewel was moved because of construction at the original venue. A local source told that two football matches were also moved for the same reason.
  • Among the options for expanding NXT being discussed includes making it a weekly two hour show and lengthening TakeOvers, but Wrestling Observer Newsletter says nothing’s been decided.
  • Though their roles aren’t confirmed, PW Insider says a number of NXT talents are scheduled to be in Long Island for Evolution - Bianca Belair, Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai and MMA Horsewomen Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir.
  • Royal Rumble 2019 will feature an Axxess fan event from Friday - Sunday at Phoenix Convention Center, per PW Insider.
