Rumor Roundup (Oct. 16, 2020): Finn Balor’s title plans, ThunderDome update, Aleister Black entrance, 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 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:

  • Wrestling Observer Live’s Bryan Alvarez heard that WWE plans to stay in the ThunderDome until at least January 2021.
  • Alvarez also said that Finn Balor will indeed be stripped of the NXT championship if he doesn’t “rapidly” recover from a broken jaw.
  • Aleister Black told Sports Illustrated that his new entrance is not complete, and there will be suitable replacements for all the things people loved about his old entrance.
  • Following his breakout performances in AEW, Fightful claims that WWE is making a “big play” for Ben Carter and wants him on the NXT UK roster.
  • WrestleVotes was told that WWE’s typical weekend live event schedule will not return before 2022.
