Rumor Roundup (June 4, 2019): Backstage reaction to Moxley, Bully Ray incident, NXT stars in Saudia Arabia, 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:

  • Several wrestlers and writers spoke to Fightful about Jon Moxley’s interview on Talk Is Jericho who confirmed Moxley’s stories of what it’s like dealing with Vince McMahon on creative and how disheartening it can be.
  • The fan at the center of the Bully Ray/ROH controversy also alleges that head booker Hunter “Delirious” Johnson posed as security to lead him backstage where Bully spoke to him.
  • PW Insider says WWE is planning to use NXT talents in the 50 man battle royal at Super ShowDown. Matt Riddle is a name they say has specifically been discussed.
