Rumor Roundup (June 26, 2021): WWE releases, Becky Lynch return, Raw & SmackDown sets, 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:

  • Fightful Select said Nick Khan led a meeting on Friday and made the decision on the most recent WWE releases.
  • They also said there were wrestlers they heard would be released who haven’t been and wrestlers they didn’t hear about who were.
  • In the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted Becky Lynch wasn’t brought back at WrestleMania because WWE wanted to sign her to a new deal first.
  • They also say the new Raw and SmackDown sets will debut in July for the return to the road.
  • Andrew Zarian says WWE booking NYC for Sept. 10 has nothing to do with AEW running there on Sept. 22.
