Rumor Roundup (July 26, 2019): SummerSlam matches, Dolph Ziggler, Corey Graves, AEW TV, 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:

  • Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are match ideas being pitched for SummerSlam that haven’t been teased at all on WWE television.
  • As of today, Dolph Ziggler isn’t planned to wrestle either Shawn Michaels or The Miz at SummerSlam, despite recent angles on television, per the Observer.
  • PW Insider notes that Corey Graves missed SmackDown this week to film scenes for a Netflix movie he’s in.
  • Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that one thing AEW will be doing with TV is running venues that look different each week.
  • MJF signed a five-year contract with AEW, says the Observer.
