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.

- Insider also reported that Tony Khan impressed his employees at Double or Nothing, both with how he handled production responsibilities like keeping the show running on time, and how enthusiastic he was about the in-ring performances.
- Super Smash Bros, the team who attacked after Best Friends beat Angelico & Jack Evans at Double or Nothing, are expected to undergo a name change in AEW to avoid copyright issues with Nintendo.
