Rumor Roundup (May 11, 2018): Styles vs. Nakamura, Charlotte surgery, WWE TV deal talk, 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 Wrestling Observer Newsletter is saying there’s been talk of an AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura Last Man Standing match.
  • Per the Observer, Charlotte’s ruptured implant actually happened before WrestleMania and she elected to hold off on the surgery so she could work all the way through the European tour then get the surgery and be back in time for SummerSlam. She’ll likely be out for a number of weeks once she does get the surgery.
  • PW Insider notes there will be a huge WWE tie-in at the NBC Upronts, with a wrestling ring apparently being a part of the stage for the show. It’s unclear if this is indicative of a new TV deal.
  • The Observer is saying there is a belief in the U.K. that Toni Storm has signed a deal with WWE.
  • According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, apparently something in the deal for WWE to run MCG Stadium in Melbourne, Australia “hit a snag” but it’s unclear what it is or if it can be fixed.
