Rumor Roundup (Sept. 26, 2020): Clash of Champions, COVID-19 in WWE, Bobby Fish, 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:

  • There’s expected to be at least one title change at Clash of Champions, but it would be a surprise if there’s any more than two.
  • Per the Observer, the belief is a coach at the Performance Center was the original cause of the COVID-19 outbreak in WWE.
  • They also say Bobby Fish suffered a minor knee injury in training, and that’s why he wasn’t on TV.
  • Billy Kidman officially returned to working for WWE this week, says PW Insider.
  • Jim Smallman is now head writer for NXT UK, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
