Rumor Roundup (Aug. 15, 2018): Undertaker, Daniel Bryan deal, Dean Ambrose’s return, 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:

  • Undertaker is currently advertised for SmackDown 1000 on Oct. 16. Matches advertised right now include AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe and Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz.
  • Speaking of Bryan, that advertisement, as well as his participation in WWE 2K19 have speculation rampant that he has actually signed a new deal with WWE as had previously been rumored.
  • According to PW Insider, Dean Ambrose was hidden from everyone backstage before his return on Raw this week.
  • Sin Cara was on Instagram saying he’s in Birmingham, Alabama to see a doctor, so he appears to be injured and may need surgery for whatever it is.
  • Another wrestler spotted in Birmingham was NXT’s Riddick Moss, per PW Insider.
