Rumor Roundup (Sept. 15, 2020): Jeff Hardy, RETRIBUTION unmasking, WWE star not re-signing, 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:

  • In an interview with BT Sport, Jeff Hardy indicated getting his old “No More Words” theme song back was a condition for re-signing with WWE. Wrestling Observer has since confirmed Hardy’s talking about a new contract and not just the injury time added to his last one.
  • RETRIBUTION won’t be unmasked until after the WWE Draft, closer to Survivor Series - at least according to Sportskeeda’s Tom Colohue.
  • Lots of speculation about who WrestleVotes is referring to in a tweet about “a certain WWE talent” who has decided not to re-sign when their current deal expires.
  • According to Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Live, Ivar is set for neck surgery in Birmingham, Alabama today.
  • Fightful reports USA Network is behind the idea for NXT to move to Tuesdays.
