Rumor Roundup (May 27, 2019): Jon Moxley AEW deal, Double or Nothing, AJ Styles, 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:

  • For whatever it’s worth, Tony Khan said it was Jon Moxley who approached him about working out a deal with AEW as soon as he was able after leaving WWE.
  • That deal, the Observer notes, includes his being able to work outside dates internationally and on the independent scene stateside, though he will be full time with AEW.
  • PW Insider noted everyone at AEW was thrilled with Double or Nothing and the television deal has driven up morale among the wrestlers.
  • AJ Styles isn’t advertised for WWE shows over the next month outside of Super ShowDown, leading to speculation he could be taking some time off.
  • Shawn Spears, the former Tye Dillinger, told reporters after Double or Nothing he hasn’t signed a deal with AEW. It’s expected he will, however.
