Rumor Roundup (Sept. 1, 2020): Lesnar/WWE, Keith Lee push, Reigns heel plans, 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:

  • A source told WrestleVotes the situation between Brock Lesnar & WWE will be resolved once Lesnar lets WWE know he’s ready to work again, or when WWE needs Brock badly enough they offer a deal he can’t refuse: “Currently, it’s nothing more than that.”
  • Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT reports Vince McMahon asked Randy Orton to make Keith Lee a star at Payback. Vince wants to “push Lee to the moon.”
  • On Sunday Night’s Main Event, Dave Meltzer talked the Roman Reigns heel turn. It’s been in the works for a while, and is something Reigns has wanted for a while.
  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer said AEW’s second show for WarnerMedia is still a go and should launch before the end of the year.
  • Per PW Insider, WWE has signed Evolve wrestlers Josh Briggs, Anthony Greene, Joe Gacy, Brandi Lauren & Curt Stallion and referee Jake Clemon.
