Rumor Roundup (May 20, 2019): Steph talks to talent, AEW/WWE, Money in the Bank injuries & changes, 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:

  • Stephanie McMahon led a talent meeting before Money in the Bank yesterday, according to Wrestling Observer. It was similar to past speeches of its type WWE management gives from time to time, but Steph listed AEW as a competitor. This was said to be the first time they ever mentioned a competing wrestling company by name.
  • The Samoa Joe/Rey Mysterio match at Money in the Bank was cut short due to blood, says PW Insider. The post-match angle went as planned.
  • The Observer’s Bryan Alvarez claims Mysterio was being evaluated by trainers for a possible shoulder injury, too.
  • Alvarez also says two camera people and Ali were banged up by ladders Brock Lesnar threw while entering last night’s main event.
  • Ember Moon was considered as the winner of the women’s ladder match, per Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp.
