Rumor Roundup (June 2, 2020): Tiered WWE Network, Kurt Angle, hype for upcoming matches, 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:

  • In their tweet moments before WWE announced the free Network tier, WrestleVotes insinuated that multiple paid tiers were coming when they wrote “the options of pricing are all still reasonable.”
  • Kurt Angle told that he turned down an offer to manage Matt Riddle on SmackDown.
  • Regarding Angle, someone within WWE told that “if they [WWE] haven’t signed him already then they will make an offer to him soon. Vince doesn’t want to lose him to AEW.”
  • Sources told Fightful that AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan’s match for the Intercontinental title (airing Fri., June 12 but filmed last Tuesday) “was ‘unbelievable’ and legitimately pumped up a very tired NXT PC crowd that was there to cheer”.
  • That site also heard Adam Cole & Velveteen Dream’s TakeOver match was filmed outdoors at night with cars surrounding the area and their headlights used. PC talent used for the crowd were unhappy because rain delayed a shoot that was supposed to start at 7 until after midnight.
