Rumor Roundup (Aug. 28, 2020): RETRIBUTION members, WWE Hall of Fame update, Uso return date, 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 said that NXT star Mia Yim was one of the RETRIBUTION members who appeared on Raw this week to attack the Mysterio family, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll be part of the group.
  • Dominik Dijakovic and Dio Maddin are also believed to have been members of RETRIBUTION for that segment, per Wrestling Inc.
  • WrestleVotes says that WWE’s current plan is to induct the members of the 2020 Hall of Fame class during WrestleMania 37 as the class of 2021.
  • PW Insider notes that WWE is conducting a job search for a new lead writer on SmackDown.
  • Jimmy Uso told Table Talk that he tore his ACL in the first minute of his match at WrestleMania 36, and he is targeting a return in January 2021.
