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:

  • Fightful Select notes that Impact Wrestling is apparently upping its pursuit of Bray Wyatt by having a member of the roster who is familiar with him reach out to do some recruiting.
  • They also say Impact has been heavily interested in signing Braun Strowman, who has started teasing making a deal.
  • According to PW Insider, Nia Jax is expected to miss an extended amount of time and that’s why she was written out via an injury caused by Shayna Baszler.
  • The Wrestling Observer says WWE was happy with the mainstream attention the Joe Gacy character turn has garnered.
  • Per Insider, Ridge Holland and Xia Li were backstage at SmackDown last week for the WWE draft. That’s led to speculation they could be in line for a call up soon.
