Rumor Roundup (May 18, 2020): SummerSlam plan, Rey Mysterio deal, Drew Gulak, 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:

  • Vince McMahon is determined to have a live crowd at SummerSlam, says the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, and that could mean pushing it back so it can have fans in attendance for it.
  • They also say the word is WWE is not giving out any raises right now, and that could be part of what’s holding up a new deal for Rey Mysterio.
  • Speaking of which, Drew Gulak’s negotiations with WWE came to a standstill when he asked for more money.
  • The Observer does say, however, that it may not be a dead issue, though the belief is that he’s gone.
  • Per WWE Network News, episodes of WWE Confidential from 2003 and 2004 will be added to the Network this week.
