Rumor Roundup (May 10, 2021): Becky Lynch contract, Daniel Bryan edict, WWE reaction to Blood & Guts, 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 Ringside News, Becky Lynch signed a new contract with WWE a few weeks ago.
  • Even though Daniel Bryan’s name was edited out of a clip last week, PW Insider claims there is no rule in WWE that forbids anyone from using his name on WWE programming.
  • Insider also says there are people in WWE management who hated AEW’s Blood & Guts match and think it “set the business back 30 years.” On the other hand, several WWE wrestlers would love to have a match like that.
  • Another Aleister Black vignette was supposed to air on the Throwback edition of SmackDown but it was cut due to time constraints, per Insider.
  • WWE has filed a trademark for the extremely exciting name “Blair Davenport.”
