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:

  • WWE is talking about doing another draft to make permanent rosters for Raw and SmackDown again, says the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
  • The Observer notes that Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan and a women’s tag team title match are both on the line-up for Clash of Champions.
  • The WON says there is “already talk of a major NXT show on Oct. 2” to oppose the AEW on TNT debut.
  • They also note there’s a lot of speculation that LAX could be Chris Jericho’s mystery partners for that debut show.
  • PW Insider notes that Matt Taven’s contract with Ring of Honor comes up at the end of September.
