Rumor Roundup (June 5, 2019): Lynch feuds, nixed Reigns line, Maverick push, Flair allegations, 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:

  • With it looking like we’re headed toward a Lacey Evans/Becky Lynch/Charlotte Flair Triple Threat for the Raw Women’s title, there’s talk we could see even more of the Flair vs. Lynch feud now since it’s reportedly off the table for WrestleMania 36.
  • A Reddit user claimed to know the line Dean Ambrose refused to say about Roman Reigns’ leukemia, but Chris Jericho took to Twitter to deny it was the same line Ambrose told him off air.
  • Drake Maverick really impressed WWE management by taking initiative and producing a lot of his 24/7 title chase material on his own, according to Fightful.
  • On Mon., June 3, Ric Flair posted an 18 minute YouTube video accusing his former manager Melinda Morris Zanoni of embezzling from him. Yesterday, it was removed from his channel.
  • WWE is holding women’s tryouts at their UK Performance Center this week, per WrestleTalk.
