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:
- According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there was “negativity and uncertainty” within Vince McMahon’s reaction to Shayna Baszler after her match with Kairi Sane on Monday Night Raw this week, apparently because Baszler didn’t come off like a WrestleMania headliner.
- Ronda Rousey and Cain Velasquez were at WWE Headquarters recently, and there’s speculation it was to talk over their future with the company.
- Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Nick Jackson missed Dynamite this week because his wife is giving birth soon, and Kenny Omega was out with a broken little finger.
