Rumor Roundup (April 30, 2019): WWE contract offers, The Revival, Lio Rush heat, cease & desists, 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:

  • Jim Ross recently mentioned that WWE re-signed an undercard wrestler who isn’t even on television to a $500K contract.
  • That led to a report from Fightful that Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson of The Revival were offered 5 year, $500K per year deals.
  • Wrestling Observer confirmed the offer, and said that Wilder & Dawson turned down the contracts.
  • That Lio Rush wasn’t on TV Monday night or mentioned while Bobby Lashley was on-screen could be a sign he’s done on Raw.
  • According to, AAA owner Dorian Roldan threatened to send cease & desists to Ring of Honor and NWA for using Willie Mack, who is still under contract to Lucha Underground.
