Rumor Roundup (May 29, 2019): AEW mention on Raw, AJ Styles injury, Fatal 4-Way change, 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 what it’s worth, Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Live that some folks told him Vince McMahon was furious over Sami Zayn mentioning AEW on Raw. So add that to the ongoing debate about it being scripted or not.
  • Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the injury AJ Styles is battling is indeed his back.
  • He also said WWE has banned saying “Saudi Arabia” on all broadcasts and they’re only allowed to use “Jeddah” or “Super ShowDown” to describe the show there.
  • PW Insider notes that WWE changed the Fatal 4-Way match on Raw this week from an elimination match to a one-fall bout to protect wrestlers from having to take falls.
  • That site also says Flamita has signed with MLW.
