Rumor Roundup (Aug. 1, 2018): The Rock return, Brock Lesnar exit, Nia Jax injury, 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:

  • There’s an “open dialogue” between The Rock and WWE about his making appearances in the future, per Sean Ross Sapp.
  • Brock Lesnar is expected to make his final three appearances for WWE on the Raw before and after SummerSlam, and SummerSlam itself.
  • There’s some speculation going around that Nia Jax may be dealing with an injury of some sort.
  • Mauro Ranallo is expected to announce the Mae Young Classic, says PW Insider.
  • That site also says Shane Strickland has signed a long term deal with MLW and the promotion is looking at signing more talent.
