Rumor Roundup (Aug. 22, 2019): Three hour SmackDown, 205 Live ending, Keith Lee, CFO$, 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:

  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer says SmackDown on Fox is “being talked about for three hours”, with the third hour airing on FS1 or WWE Network.
  • Meltzer also said that a lot of people think “205 Live’s gonna disappear.”
  • Talent on 205 Live think the show will end next month, per Twitter’s rovert.
  • NXT’s Keith Lee has a big part in the upcoming WWE/Netflix kids movie The Main Event, reports PW Insider. A source told the site they “wouldn’t be surprised to see Lee get a big push timed with the release of the film.”
