Rumor Roundup (May 23, 2020): SummerSlam situation, Ember Moon injury, WWE on FS1, 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:

  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that the SummerSlam situation “continues to not look promising” because Vince McMahon wants the show with fans and that can’t happen on schedule in Boston.
  • For whatever it’s worth, Ember Moon mentioned on Backstage this week that her injury could be career ending.
  • FOX is expected to continue heavily leaning on WWE for content on FS1 into the near future.
  • MLW should be announcing a deal with a major streaming service in the very near future.
  • PW Insider notes that Ring of Honor has yet to make a decision on when live events will resume.
