Paul Heyman WWE Network

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 have been many changes made to the SummerSlam card over the past week, with much of it playing out on Raw and SmackDown.
  • That includes Paul Heyman apparently making the decision to do the women’s tag team title change on Raw, and a Sami Zayn vs. Aleister Black moving up.
  • There could be further changes coming to the SummerSlam card and, in fact, the Observer notes those changes are “likely.”
  • AEW will hold one more PPV after All Out in 2019 and then four in 2020, per the WON.
  • New Japan World has seen an increase in numbers in both the U.S. and U.K. and that’s credited to Jon Moxley and Will Ospreay, says the Observer.
