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:
- On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said Roman Reigns wasn’t originally intended to have a long run with the Universal championship.
- Per WrestleVotes, there were ideas thrown around for WrestleMania 37 including Bray Wyatt & Alexa Bliss vs. Edge & Beth Phoenix but that’s unlikely to happen and Edge vs. Randy Orton is still the most likely match.
- The speculation, obvious as it may be, is that everything we’ve seen with Sheamus and Drew McIntyre recently is a slow build to the two feuding. That could happen very soon.
- According to PW Insider, Kurt Angle is being brought in for Undertaker’s farewell at Survivor Series.
- The Observer notes that while Mandy Rose was written off Survivor Series due to injury, Dana Brooke’s injury was an angle to write her off along with her tag partner.
