Rumor Roundup (July 19, 2018): Lesnar return, AJ Styles plans, Kane status, Hogan speech, 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:

  • Brock Lesnar is being advertised for the July 30 Raw in Miami by American Airlines Arena. It would be his first WWE television appearance since April, and he’s expected to interact with his SummerSlam challenger.
  • AJ Styles is currently pencilled in to face, and beat, Samoa Joe at SummerSlam.
  • Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer is now saying he’s heard Hulk Hogan’s Extreme Rules speech wasn’t filmed.
  • Per PW Insider, Kane’s injury is to his Achilles tendon and occurred on the July 10 SmackDown. He’s not expected back on WWE TV any time soon due to his mayoral campaign in Tennessee.
