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 reported several backstage details about CM Punk & WWE Backstage, including confirmation his deal is with Fox and that he has not signed anything with WWE at this time. WWE did give Fox their approval to bring Punk in.
  • Punk won’t be on WWE Backstage every week, but he will be a regular.
  • On Wrestler Observer Live, it was said that Punk met with Tony Khan about joining AEW and passed on “a lot of money”.
