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:

  • WrestlingNews.co claims Vince McMahon wants Becky Lynch back and wrestling at WrestleMania 37 next year. There was word going around that she was backstage at SmackDown this past week.
  • The expectation is Big E will get a big singles push on SmackDown right away after Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston were sent to Raw.
  • Per the Observer, WWE believes everything they did with Nia Jax putting her through the table and her winning the battle royal has made Lana a “super babyface.”
  • Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that Ben Carter’s decision to sign with WWE was driven largely by the pandemic affecting independent shows well into 2021.
  • Lucha Libre Online notes Rush and Dragon Lee have contracts coming up soon. In Rush’s case, he seems to want it known he’s available come early next year.
