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:
- WWE has big plans for the Usos in coming months, according to WrestlingNews.co. The site’s sources say Jimmy & Jey will win the SmackDown Tag titles from a babyface team soon, which means Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode will be dropping them - perhaps as early as this Sunday.
- In a story first reported by Ringside News, Mia Yim was set to debut on SmackDown last Friday. Like the latest Aleister Black video, her appearance was cut for time.
- While confirming that report, Wrestling Observer added that Yim is tentatively scheduled to appear on this week’s show. Fightful Select noted Yim was going to start a feud with Carmella.
- Writer and academic David Dennis appeared in Sunday’s A&E Biography on Booker T, but he tweeted (and deleted) that producers filmed but didn’t use a much longer segment where he “went in about” Triple H going over Booker in their WrestleMania 19 feud.
- Velveteen Dream was backstage at Raw last night, per Wrestling Observer.
