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:

  • Andrade “Cien” Almas is in line for a big push on SmackDown after impressing officials during his July 17 match with AJ Styles, reports PW Insider.
  • By the end of 2019, WWE may expand the number of NXT TakeOver events to eight per year, per Barnburner’s No Holds Barred podcast.
  • The Rock is leaning toward wrestling again soon, maybe even at WrestleMania 35, and will be making some WWE appearances soon, according to TicketDrew.
  • TMZ says Nikki Bella has again moved out of John Cena’s house. She’s looking for a four bedroom, million dollar home in San Diego to be near Brie and “Figure herself out”.
  • Contrary to prior reports, PW Insider now says Jason Jordan has not been medically cleared and is still sidelined with a neck issue.
