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:
- PW Insider says there was talk of Brock Lesnar appearing on Raw this week but obviously that didn’t happen. There’s no word on when he’ll show up next as of right now.
- Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that he asked about Sasha Banks and was told she’s out due to a medical issue. They are being secretive about what it is, which could lead to further issues with speculation on what’s going on.
- Meltzer also said Dean Ambrose was going to turn heel on The Shield before he got hurt last year. So it’s at least possible WWE could be going back to that now.
- Speaking of The Shield, the Observer says Vince McMahon really liked the main event on Raw this week with AOP teaming with Baron Corbin against Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns.
- Current odds from Bet Wrestling indicate there won’t be any title changes at Super Show-Down.
