Rumor Roundup (Aug. 5, 2020): WWE plans, Raw booking, rewrites, Kairi Sane, 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 the mentality at WWE right now is to do what worked in the 90s. That’s why things are starting to look a little more edgy.
  • He also said Monday Night Raw this week was about throwing a lot of stuff at the wall and seeing what would stick.
  • PW Insider noted that many of the late rewrites to Raw this week were about inserting a lot of the backstage segments.
  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter said Kairi Sane was originally to return to Stardom but it’s no longer clear if she’ll be doing that or simply retiring.
  • It’s expected Ric Flair will be appearing alongside Randy Orton going forward.
