WWE’s YouTube

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:

  • Liv Morgan was originally planned to beat Carmella in the Queen’s Crown tournament, according to Fightful Select. Plans were changed at the last minute.
  • Fightful also noted that there is significant frustration from talent and staff about the booking of the women’s division lately.
  • Roman Reigns is reportedly the top merchandise seller among heels in WWE history. A source told that Roman Reigns merchandise sales are approaching John Cena levels, which is seen as particularly impressive since Cena was a babyface.
  • WWE was planning to split AJ Styles and Omos in the draft, until WrestleVotes says “people of power (including a main Raw talent) spoke up & expressed thoughts on how Omos isn’t quite ready for singles yet.”
  • AEW announced a “Heritage Night” promotion for Rampage in Miami this Friday night. Wrestling Observer notes the show “had very weak ticket sales as of the weekend.”
