Rumor Roundup (April 2, 2021): AEW bullies, Riddle botch, Mysterio status, 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:

  • According to Fightful, several NXT wrestlers and staff denied that Triple H said anything close to the notion that AEW was bullying NXT on Wednesday nights. Triple H hopes that a move to Tuesday will put the focus more on the NXT product and less on its viewership.
  • On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez said that Riddle really did forget his line on Raw. The segment was presumably pre-taped; Bruce Prichard and Vince McMahon thought it was so funny that they left it in the episode.
  • Ringside News was told that Aalyah Mysterio doesn’t know if she’s done with WWE, or if they still might come up with a plan for her.
  • F4WOnline’s Dave Meltzer said the reason Murphy deleted his Instagram post about the Mysterio family is because he was ordered to delete it by WWE.
  • Per Alvarez, virtual fans in the ThunderDome were directed to cheer Rhea Ripley on Raw.
