Rumor Roundup (April 19, 2019): Undertaker deal, Bayley, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows, 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:

  • The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter says WWE made Undertaker an offer he couldn’t refuse, financially speaking, and that’s how the company will prevent him from taking outside bookings going forward.
  • The WON also says the decision to move Bayley to SmackDown Live had been the plan for some time.
  • PW Insider notes that Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows have remained steadfast in leaving WWE later this year.
  • WWE has applied to trademark the term “WWE Stomping Grounds,” possibly for a future event, says Insider.
  • The Observer mentions New Japan announced Kazuchika Okada, Tetsuya Naito, Jay White, and Kota Ibushi for the G-1 Climax tournament to help get ticket sales going in Dallas.
