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:

  • Nikki Bella vs. Ronda Rousey for the Raw women’s title still looks to be in the plans, per TicketDrew.
  • There’s also continued speculation that women’s tag team titles are coming. This could be from a sheet going around claiming to be an Evolution match card rundown, but that is believed to be a fake.
  • Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Pentagon Jr. and Fenix likely can’t make a move to WWE until they’re out of their contracts from Lucha Underground, which may be at the end of season four. That’s expected to be at the start of 2019.
  • PW Insider says that their future and its uncertainty will be used in upcoming MLW storylines.
  • Pro Wrestling Sheet says The Rock’s daughter has been training at the WWE Performance Center dating back a number of months.
