Rumor Roundup (Aug. 7, 2020): Shane McMahon lawsuit, Bischoff in AEW, Guevara’s blown spot, 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:

  • Shane McMahon has been named as a defendant in a lawsuit against Ideanomics, where he’d been a top executive since 2010. The lawsuit alleges “unjust enrichment, abuse of control, gross mismanagement, waste of corporate assets.” The full complaint can be read at HeelByNature.
  • Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that AEW has held off peaking the push of some wrestlers right now without fans in the arena, because they don’t want “to do the Drew McIntyre thing” to them.
  • On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez said that Sammy Guevara threw the wrong chair at Matt Hardy on Dynamite, and that’s why the planned spot went wrong and caused so much blood loss.
  • Eric Bischoff mentioned to WrestleZone that his appearance on Dynamite this week was nothing more than a cameo for AEW.
  • Eric Young told Sportskeeda that he is signed exclusively to Impact Wrestling.
