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:
- WWE’s original plans for SummerSlam have been “torn up,” according to WrestleVotes.
- Edge’s injury played a big part in the decision to re-work the SummerSlam card. The account says that without fans, Brock Lesnar probably won’t work the show.
- Randy Orton’s third match with Edge will now likely happen at next year’s Royal Rumble or WrestleMania. WrestlingNews.co says they’re considering having Orton enter that match as WWE champion.
- That pitch includes McIntyre winning the belt back once fans are back in arenas, so he can have the moment he didn’t get at WrestleMania 36.
- Bruce Prichard’s Something to Wrestle With co-host Conrad Thompson told Wrestling Inc Prichard is “tired” and “stressing” running both Raw and SmackDown since Paul Heyman’s firing. Thompson speculated dealing with Fox, USA, and pandemic-caused re-writes were the biggest headaches.
