Rumor Roundup (April 26, 2021): Roman Reigns vs. Cesaro, SmackDown, WWE turmoil, 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 Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan title match on SmackDown next week is expected to lead to Reigns vs. Cesaro, though it’s unclear exactly how. The Observer noted there are many possible directions that are on the table.
  • Ringside News says SmackDown looked the way it did this week because Vince McMahon was tied up with everything going on within WWE this past week.
  • For whatever it’s worth, someone claiming to be Mark Carrano’s ex girlfriend made a series of allegations against him ranging from stealing WWE belts to trying to kill his ex’s cat.
  • The Observer says advanced orders of Impact Rebellion were “way ahead of any Impact PPV show in a long time.”
  • Former Lucha Underground star Marty the Moth is teasing debuting for AEW, with speculation that’s where he’s headed.
