Rumor Roundup (Aug. 31, 2019): WWE draft changes, Robert Roode push, Rey Mysterio, 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:

  • Regarding the possible WWE draft, the idea, apparently, is that major changes won’t be made to either roster.
  • Per the Observer, Paul Heyman came up with the idea to put Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler together because he’s high on Roode and the hope is this will get him over.
  • Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Rey Mysterio missed TV this past week to do stem cell treatment overseas.
  • They also say The Usos are expected back in a couple weeks.
  • TK O’Ryan has been out due to concussion issues, says the Observer.
