Rumor Roundup (Nov. 5, 2019): Vince meeting with talent over Saudi situation, Rollins, Orton, more!

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 was a meeting with Vince McMahon and the Raw crew before last night’s show, according to Wrestling Observer. Management reiterated that the delays were caused by mechanical issues & nothing more, and blamed talent speculation for causing problems.
  • They also report that Seth Rollins “attempted to do a rah-rah speech” which included telling people to keep things like this off social media.
  • The Observer went on to say Vince left well before knowing there were any problems with the main charter. McMahon’s flight left at 12:40 a.m. local time, about two hours before the wrestlers and crew were supposed to even board their plane.
  • Randy Orton personally lobbied McMahon to stay partnered with The Revival, per Fightful.
  • WWE added a couple well-known names in behind-the-scenes roles recently. Lance Storm announced on Twitter he’s returning to the company to work as a producer, and PW Insider says CM Punk & Colt Cabana’s trainer Christopher “Ace Steel” Guy is working in Orlando as a coach.
