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:
- According to the Observer, not only will Becky Lynch and The IIconics defend their titles on both brands but they will have different challengers on each brand.
- Speaking of the women’s tag team titles, the plan also still appears to be to have them defended in NXT.
- In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer mentioned it being “obvious” that AEW would like Dean Ambrose but he’s heard “nothing in that direction.”
- PW Insider notes that Samoa Joe is expected at Monday Night Raw next week, so the angle planned to bring him in last week should be executed then.
- Road Dogg will be taking an “extended break” from WWE while both sides figure out what to do with him, says Insider.
