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 WWE Draft is scheduled for Aug. 30 & Sept. 3, per Mat Men’s Andrew Zarian.
  • Sources told the Usos/Mysterios feud will continue until SummerSlam. Jimmy & Jey will both embrace Roman’s vision, and they’ll win the SmackDown Tag belts by that Aug. 21 show.
  • WrestleVotes says they heard “Eva Marie’s return include her having a “muscle” of some sorts by her side.”
  • Mercedes Martinez & Piper Niven are being considered for the role, and Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp heard the plan was Niven “as of a few weeks ago, but plans do change, pal.”
  • While discussing Ruby Riott’s WWE release, Wrestling Observer Live’s Bryan Alvarez said Riott & Liv Morgan were scheduled to win WrestleMania 37 Night One’s Tag Turmoil match for a Women’s Tag title shot on Night Two. Plans changed the day of the show to have Natalya & Tamina win. Either way, Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler were planned to retain.
