Rumor Roundup (Aug. 10, 2019): WWE house shows, Jimmy Uso, SummerSlam weekend, 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:

  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes there has been talk of cutting back on WWE house shows as well as doing more super shows.
  • Per PW Insider, Jimmy Uso won’t be able to attend SummerSlam weekend in Canada due to his arrest in Florida late last month.
  • They also say Christian, Mark Henry, and Alicia Fox have all been brought in for SummerSlam weekend.
  • Justin Barrasso noted WWE was considering Fenway Park for SummerSlam 2020 but noted the Red Sox being in-season would have made it nearly impossible.
  • The Observer notes that PAC and LAX have both been talked about as possible mystery partners for Chris Jericho on AEW’s TV debut.
