Rumor Roundup (May 28, 2021): John Cena return, SummerSlam main event, Eva Marie, Finn Bálor, AEW expansion, 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 Mat Men Podcast indicated the reason why WWE is annoyed with John Cena’s apology to China is because “there are plans for John right now” in WWE.
  • In addition to a guest host and a Saturday date, Andrew Zarian says SummerSlam 2021 will feature a big main event match that “we haven’t seen happen too often.” He included the following cryptic hint about the match: “What you can’t see, you can’t believe.”
  • Fightful has been told that WWE’s current plan for Eva Marie doesn’t involve her actually wrestling; she is there to help another female talent get over.
  • WrestleVotes heard that members of the Raw creative team have been asking “for months” to get Finn Balor on the show.
  • Tony Khan and Cody Rhodes have mentioned that AEW will be looking to expand its roster now that the new Rampage show and eventual move to TBS have been announced.
