Rumor Roundup (May 14, 2018): Vince’s reaction to Reigns backlash, Bryan’s contract, next WWE Developmental class, 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:

  • Vince McMahon wasn’t bothered by fans leaving during and immediately after the main event of Backlash, according to WrestlingNews.Co. The site’s source says McMahon expected Reigns to be unpopular in the New York/New Jersey market and attributed the exits to the show running late.
  • On their Elite Audio show, PW Insider reported Daniel Bryan has not signed a new contract with WWE and could leave in September. The site expects he will stay with WWE, however.
  • Nia Jax missed Raw’s house shows this past weekend. She flew to New York to take part in NBC Upfronts, which would make her doubtful for Raw in London tonight.
  • In addition to Keith Lee, Casey Michael (of Squared Circle Sirens) says WWE’s next Performance Center class will likely include Impact and AAA’s Garza Jr, rugby players Daniel Vidot and Luke Menzies and possibly ICW’s Joe Coffey, although the Scottish indie star may skip Orlando and work for the UK brand.
  • It’s believed the injury suffered by Jay Lethal at Ring of Honor’s show in Toronto Friday night was a concussion. Wrestling Observer reports he had “memory issues” which led to ROH keeping him out Saturday in Michigan.
