Rumor Roundup (June 26, 2020): Positive COVID tests in WWE, Heyman/Morgan, Guevara suspension, travel restrictions, 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:

  • Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp tweeted that there were “a lot of positive COVID-19 tests” in WWE across all “departments that were in attendance.”
  • WWE conducted a lot of COVID-19 testing on Thursday (June 25), and PW Insider says it was done via drive-thru. WWE is still planning to tape shows today (June 26) and tomorrow.
  • There’s speculation that some wrestlers might try to get around travel restrictions in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut by flying into Philadelphia, and then driving into those states from there.
  • Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda says that Vince McMahon didn’t approve any of Paul Heyman’s ideas for how to debut Liv Morgan on Raw, until the Lana wedding angle was eventually pitched.
  • On the Dynamite post-show, Tony Schiavone initially said he thinks that Sammy Guevara’s suspension will last four weeks. 15 to 20 minutes later, someone “from the office” reminded Tony that Guevara’s suspension length is “indefinite.”
