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:
- ROH COO Joe Koff “told talent he had multiple meetings trying to fight for ROH, but ultimately Sinclair made the call” to release wrestlers from their contracts and go on hiatus, tweeted Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp. “Talent was told there was some type of TV show that will be in place after Final Battle but weren’t told what that would be.”
- While speaking with the MCW Cast, Doc Gallows claimed that during his time with WWE he heard the company’s plan was to “control all the indies and have everything self-produced through them. This was before AEW had officially launched and that was kind of the plan.”
- The tag teams of Veer & Shanky, T-BAR & MACE, Natalya & Tamina, and Shotzi & Tegan Nox all found out they were being split in the WWE Draft via social media, according to Fightful Select.
- Fightful also says Adam Pearce & Molly Holly produced last Friday’s controversial Charlotte Flair/Becky Lynch title exchange segment.
- MLW recently released some wrestlers, according to PW Insider. The site says Bu Ku Dao, Beastman, and Leo Brien are confirmed, but there may also be more names.
