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:

  • According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Roman Reigns return was kept a secret from nearly everyone, including the writers.
  • While there was talk of Edge vs. Randy Orton headlining WrestleMania 37, the Observer says the last word is there is no clear main event direction at this point.
  • The early expectation is there will be multiple title changes at Payback.
  • Per PW Insider, Austin Theory is officially off the Raw roster and no longer associated with Seth Rollins & Murphy.
  • Insider also says Cody may be off AEW TV for a while to do something with the Heels series on STARZ that Stephen Amell asked him to be a part of.
