New, comments

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:

  • There is a lot of talk that CM Punk was actually offered a job to work on the Fox studio show.
  • According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Edge got a new deal with WWE by negotiating with AEW as well. There’s also at least been talk of him doing another match.
  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Finn Balor will be making main roster money but working exclusively in NXT from here on out.
  • WWE has been “attempting to make moves” for NXT Japan, per the WON, but it’s “become difficult.”
  • Adam Cole actually is suffering from a wrist injury, says the Observer.
