Brock Lesnar WWE Network

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:

  • Per PW Insider, Brock Lesnar flew home after SummerSlam and was never going to appear on Monday Night Raw, despite previous advertisements he would be there.
  • That site also says there was a plan in place to do Dean Ambrose vs. Drew McIntyre on Raw this week but that was obviously changed to Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler.
  • More from Insider: Erick Rowan is headed for surgery to repair his bicep tear sometime this week.
  • Rey Mysterio is expected to return to WWE shortly after he works the ALL IN event on Sept. 1.
  • Matt Hardy and Jason Jordan, pending their injuries, are apparently being taught how to be producers for WWE.
