Rumor Roundup (Aug. 28, 2018): Undertaker, Neville, SmackDown plans, WWE Saudia Arabia 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:

  • While it’s not clear if he’ll be on television, per PW Insider Undertaker will be at next week’s Raw taping in Columbus, Ohio.
  • That site also says Neville was spotted in Pittsburgh last week, leading to speculation he could be signing a new deal with WWE to work on a brand other than 205 Live.
  • Maryse is scheduled to be on SmackDown tonight and will be a regular again from here on out, according to Insider. They also report a Maryse vs. Brie Bella match is being considered for Evolution.
  • Both PW Insider and Wrestling Observer say next week’s tag tournament triple threat on SmackDown will be The Usos vs. Sanity vs. Rusev Day.
  • Also from Insider, WWE has rescheduled two European house show dates from Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 to May of 2019. The belief is this is so they can announce their next show in Saudi Arabia for the first week of November.
