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. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.
Rumors for the Day:
- According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is going with the idea that Brock Lesnar is leaving and they’ll likely be downplaying him as his run comes to an end.
- That could mean the Ronda Rousey & Kurt Angle vs. Stephanie McMahon & Triple H match gets the main event spot over Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns. The match order has yet to be finalized, however.
- The Observer notes that WWE is concerned enough about possible issues with both Lesnar and Reigns that “they are not scheduling a few key players” until they’re sure issues with them are settled. That includes Braun Strowman, and it’s why he doesn’t have a clear direction right now.
- The “Ultimate Deletion” is going to take place on an episode of Raw instead of WrestleMania, according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
- Speaking of which, PW Insider notes Ultimate Deletion was filmed yesterday in Cameron, North Carolina and Jeremy Borash was there to work on it with everyone.
