Rumor Roundup (Feb. 24, 2021): Drew McIntyre, Asuka injury, RETRIBUTION breakup, 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:

  • Per PW Insider, Drew McIntyre was backstage at Monday Night Raw the decision was just made not to use him this week.
  • They also say that Asuka did indeed lose a tooth when Shayna Baszler kicked her in the face during Raw this week but it’s unclear if she suffered other injuries.
  • The early speculation after Raw is that RETRIBUTION may indeed be heading for a split sooner rather than later.
  • For what it’s worth, Melina told WrestleTalk that she didn’t sign with WWE recently because she has a bad knee.
  • Sportskeeda claims Ric Flair asked WWE to be used on television and that’s part of why he’s been back.
