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:

  • In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter it’s mentioned the Raw Reunion show came about because it was “one of the least bad ideas” from USA Network to turn ratings around.
  • They also say Bully Ray and Jim Ross were both invited to the show but both elected against it.
  • Finn Balor is not currently planned to wrestle as “The Demon” at SummerSlam, per the Observer.
  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned WWE is going to be doing an updated version of the “Lex Express” to help promote the upcoming WWE move to FOX.
