Rumor Roundup (July 22, 2020): New Nation of Domination, Shayna Baszler plans, Orton, 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:

  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer indicated there was originally a plan for Ron Simmons to make a new Nation of Domination on Raw this week. That changed for this week, but apparently it could still happen.
  • He also said there were plans for Natalya to injure Kairi Sane as her write off from television but that was changed to Shayna Baszler.
  • It’s unclear, however, if the plan is for Asuka vs. Baszler at SummerSlam as of right now but at one point it was.
  • The Observer also says it looks like the angle setting up Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton could be going down next week.
  • According to WrestleVotes, Evolve and wXw will be on the WWE Network before the end of the year.
