New, 71 comments

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:

  • PW Insider speculates that Brock Lesnar will be off WWE television until things are back to how they used to be before everything shut down.
  • Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that the Ronda Rousey stuff that happened over the weekend is not a work.
  • He also said that he expects her to work WrestleMania 37 in Los Angeles next year but she’s not expected back anytime soon.
  • More from Meltzer: releasing The Revival when WWE did was likely because it was a Friday and it was going to get buried in the news. Plus, AEW has already taped so much television.
  • Some rumors got around that Corey Graves was the on-air personality who got the coronavirus but the Observer says that’s not the case.
