Rumor Roundup (June 2, 2018): Roman Reigns & AJ Styles, SmackDown move, Alicia Fox, more!

Roman Reigns WWE

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:

  • Roman Reigns and AJ Styles are both expected back on television next week and will be featured prominently once again, but they are missing this weekends house shows, per the Observer.
  • With SmackDown moving to FOX TV there’s already speculation that the brand extension could change in a major way to account for the larger audience.
  • Per PW Insider, Alicia Fox is scheduled to be at some upcoming TV tapings but it’s unclear when she’ll be used again.
  • Nikki Bella is telling TMZ that her and John Cena are “working on the relationship” but by all accounts it looks as though the two are back together. It may not have all been a work all along but it was definitely played up for television.
  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that Xia Brookside could be in the Mae Young Classic and be getting signed by WWE.
