Rumor Roundup (Aug. 14, 2020): WWE TV plans, SummerSlam match, Big E, 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:

  • WrestleVotes notes that there’s strong enthusiasm at the Performance Center that all episodes of WWE television will be live from the Amway Center in Orlando.
  • PW Insider says current plans call for AJ Styles to defend the Intercontinental championship against Jeff Hardy at SummerSlam.
  • For whatever it’s worth, Big E told talkSPORT that WWE told him where they plan for his singles run to go but he won’t believe it until he sees it.
  • Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that AEW still has big plans for Jungle Boy but is waiting for the return of fans at live shows.
  • Vitor Belfort told Chris Van Vliet he could be coming back to pro wrestling and AEW in the future.
