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:

  • According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, and Kevin Dunn all missed Raw and SmackDown this past week for various reasons.
  • This isn’t exactly new, but Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that “a lot of people are counting the days” until their WWE contract expires.
  • Lars Sullivan apparently has a minor injury, per Meltzer, and that’s why he didn’t wrestle Matt Hardy on SmackDown this week as originally planned.
  • Per the Observer, Chad Gable and Jack Gallagher screwed up the finish on 205 Live this week, as it wasn’t supposed to be a count out.
  • PW Insider notes that Impact Wrestling now has a rule that talent working on TV can only wear shirts that are official Impact shirts.
