Rumor Roundup (April 30, 2018): WWE Saudi Arabia return, Greatest Royal Rumble, Drew McIntyre, 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 Riyadh Report is saying WWE will return to Saudi Arabia for another show in November.
  • According to PW Insider, there were some within WWE who were not happy about going to Saudi Arabia to perform at Greatest Royal Rumble.
  • Drew McIntyre wasn’t at Greatest Royal Rumble because WWE didn’t call him up to the main roster in time enough to work out a visa for him, per the Observer.
  • Apparently some fans thought Aiden English was hurt at Greatest Royal Rumble on the Tombstone he took from Undertaker but PW Insider says he’s okay.
  • PW Insider says WWE was originally going to have Hornswoggle wrestle on the Greatest Royal Rumble Kickoff show against Wee-BL but instead decided to put him in the Rumble match.
