Rumor Roundup (Feb. 27, 2021): The Miz plans, John Morrison injury, Zelina Vega, 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:

  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that The Miz is still earmarked for a match with Bad Bunny at WrestleMania 37, so he’ll be losing the WWE championship sooner rather than later.
  • They also say John Morrison is dealing with a knee injury coming out of Raw.
  • Tony Khan mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that he was waiting for Zelina Vega’s non-compete clause to run out before engaging in any talks about signing with AEW.
  • Bobby Stevenson, a standout amateur wrestler from Minnesota, will be starting with WWE soon, says the Observer.
  • The WON notes that New Japan Pro Wrestling is still in talks with multiple stations in the U.S., with AXS being among them.
