Rumor Roundup (July 23, 2019): Raw Reunion headaches, RVD return, WWE writers let go, Bischoff, 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:

  • Raw Reunion was “a ton of headaches”, according to Wrestling Observer. Apparently a lot of segments were changed at the last minute because Legends couldn’t get medically cleared.
  • RVD’s appearance was just for last night, per PW Insider, who says he got permission in writing from Impact to show up on WWE television.
  • Lead writers Steve Guerreri and Steve Oppenheim were let go by WWE last week. Pro Wrestling Sheet first reported it, and said the releases were not Paul Heyman or Eric Bischoff’s call.
  • Speaking of Bischoff, it was speculated on Wrestling Observer Radio that since he’s not overseeing creative, one of his main roles will be as the liason between WWE and Fox.
  • PW Insider says Bischoff will be at the SmackDown taping in Miami tonight.
