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 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:
- Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that it’s not official that Bayley is staying put on SmackDown but it is expected since Asuka is staying on Raw.
- He also said plans do call for The Street Profits to move over to SmackDown, which would send their tag titles over to replace The New Day, who brought their tag titles to Raw.
- There was also originally a plan to move Braun Strowman over to Raw, so that could also be announced this week.
- According to Fightful, original plans for Lars Sullivan when he was initially called up had him wrestling Brock Lesnar but that was obviously derailed.
