Rumor Roundup (July 11, 2020): Eye for an Eye match, Rey Mysterio situation, WWE tapings, 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 says the current plan is to tape the Rey Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins “Eye for an Eye” match and they will apparently “use some form of CGI effects to simulate an eye being pulled out as the finish.”
  • It’s also said the original eye infection storyline was to write him out of the company but negotiations for a new deal with WWE are ongoing.
  • Per the Observer, the Raw, SmackDown, and NXT crews are being kept separate during tapings after the recent COVID-19 outbreak in WWE.
  • For whatever it’s worth, the WON says Rob Gronkowski “didn’t make a lot of friends in his brief WWE run.”
  • Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT says Drew McIntyre told him WWE is filming a documentary on him surrounding his title win at WrestleMania 36.
