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:

  • PW Insider confirms that was David Krumholtz of The Santa Clause, Harold & Kumar, and Numb3rs fame as the Drew McIntyre impersonator on Raw last night.
  • “It looks like there could be a big AEW presence” on Impact in the coming weeks, says WrestlingNews.co.
  • WWE Senior Producer Steve Conoscenti told Wrestling Inc a second season of Ruthless Aggression is “coming soon” to the Network.
  • Per Fightful Select, Michael Elgin has said he won’t go back to New Japan because he thinks Tama Tonga is an unsafe worker who only got a push because his father is Haku. New Japan officials say Elgin was fired.
  • Superstar Spectacle will film Friday at the Capital Wrestling Center, according to PW Insider. Rehearsals will held ahead throughout the week so they can go live-to-tape.
