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:

  • Per the Wrestling Observer, Randy Orton winning the WWE title at SummerSlam leading to a WrestleMania match against Edge has been thrown around as an idea within the company.
  • However, there is another contingent who believe Drew McIntyre should remain champion instead of putting the belt back on someone who has been around a long time.
  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that Renee Young has agreed to work through SummerSlam weekend for WWE.
  • They also say Rey Mysterio’s new deal is “believed to be for three years.”
  • There’s still no start date for the second AEW prime time show but it should be sooner rather than later, according to the Observer.
