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:

  • Dean Ambrose is due back “within the next month” according to PW Insider. One source told them he’ll be at SummerSlam, but didn’t confirm he’d work the show, just that he’ll return to storylines “around that timeframe”.
  • Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall filmed something at Hogan’s Beach Shop in Florida last week. Wrestling Observer says its unknown if WWE is involved. Hogan is teasing an Oct. 27 release or update for his website.
  • A Dave Meltzer comment on The Observer Board about the seriousness of Aleister Black’s groin injury has fans concerned about his availability for next weekend’s TakeOver.
