Randy Orton WWE

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:

  • Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler is now a non-title match tonight on Raw. The Observer notes that was a late change and it was indeed originally planned to be a title match.
  • Speaking of McIntyre, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter mentions talk of Orton possibly winning the title from McIntyre to set up a future match for the WWE championship with Edge.
  • Sportskeeda says Vince McMahon isn’t sold on Aleister Black and the push he enjoyed while Paul Heyman had power could be done for.
  • Fightful says Saurav Gurjar recently apologized backstage at an NXT meeting for spoiling the Adam Cole vs. Keith Lee match on his Instagram.
  • For whatever it’s worth, Matt Hardy is saying he’s going to just be himself on AEW TV going forward and no longer do any gimmicks.
