Rumor Roundup (June 17, 2020): WWE mask situation, McIntyre & Lashley, Angel Garza, 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:

  • Jon Alba, a reporter in the Orlando area, says multiple fans told him WWE did not tell them they couldn’t wear masks at the Monday TV tapings as has been going around.
  • Per WrestleTalk, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley pitched the idea of working together after WrestleMania 36.
  • It was also said that the match at Backlash was structured with Paul Heyman but the finish was more Vince McMahon.
  • According to Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT, Vince McMahon sees Angel Garza as a young Eddie Guerrero.
  • There’s at least some talk that Apollo Crews could be headed for a heel turn, and MVP could be building a new stable.
