Rumor Roundup (April 21, 2018): Raw tag team titles, new WWE rosters, Alexa Bliss surgery, 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:

  • The Observer notes that while it would seem obvious Woken Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt will win the Raw tag team titles at Greatest Royal Rumble because The Bar are now on SmackDown, it’s at least possible that won’t be the case because they could do a switch at Backlash just over one week later, as all WWE pay-per-views are now co-branded.
  • Speaking of which, they also note the new Raw and SmackDown post-Superstar Shakeup rosters won’t go into effect for “at least a few more weeks” regarding house shows.
  • Post Wrestling says Alexa Bliss had “minor cosmetic surgery” after WrestleMania but she’s still scheduled for the upcoming Backlash pay-per-view on May. 6.
  • Camping World Stadium is sending out emails to fans asking them to take a survey to help get WrestleMania back in Orlando.
  • The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes the Ring of Honor shows post-Supercard of Honor have struggled to sell tickets.
