Rumor Roundup (Feb. 24, 2020): WrestleMania 36 changes, Jeff Hardy return, Raven, 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:

  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said changes have been made to previously planned WrestleMania 36 matches.
  • Those changes are mostly on the SmackDown side, apparently, with Bray Wyatt vs. Roman Reigns and John Cena vs. Elias off altogether.
  • Lastly, Bayley vs. Naomi was previously planned for WrestleMania 36 but moved up to Super ShowDown so plans could be different for the big show now.
  • PW Insider notes that Jeff Hardy was backstage at SmackDown last week and is expected there again next week. He’s returning soon and will apparently do so on the blue brand.
  • They also say Raven appearing in the crowd at AEW Dynamite was just a way to tease he is The Exalted One but that isn’t actually the plan.
