Rumor Roundup (April 27, 2020): Anonymous SmackDown hacker, Charlotte title defense, Elias, 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:

  • Per the Observer, there’s been talk of multiple wrestlers being revealed as the anonymous truth teller on SmackDown. Both Ali and Chad Gable are two of the names in particular that have been discussed.
  • Charlotte Flair vs. Io Shirai isn’t currently scheduled for Money in the Bank, says the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
  • They also say the injury angle for Elias is to keep his program with Baron Corbin going.
  • While there has been talk of Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows going to New Japan or AEW there’s no movement on either front just yet.
  • Tokyo Sports is saying any talk of an NXT Japan promotion has gone away after WWE decided to do cutbacks.
