Rumor Roundup (April 15, 2019): Ronda Rousey surgery, Undertaker deal, Superstar Shake-up, 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:

  • Per Fightful, Ronda Rousey is set for surgery this week, as she’ll get her hand operated on tomorrow.
  • They also say she was backstage at Monday Night Raw last week and WWE is hoping she returns to the company later this year or early next year.
  • According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE has been trying to keep Undertaker from doing work with outside promoters and he may have signed a new deal that says he won’t.
  • WWE is listing Sami Zayn as a free agent going into the Superstar Shake-up. It’s believed the NXT call ups will officially find their brand when the Shake-up is finished.
  • PW Insider notes that Jonny Loquasto, an announcer for Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, has signed with WWE.
