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 the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, John Cena vs. Roman Reigns is “locked in” as the main event of SummerSlam.
- Fightful Select says Bayley suffered her injury during a mandatory “return to the road” session at the WWE Performance Center in what was apparently a freak accident.
- They also say that her injury may have led to some changes in plans for incoming talent. That could be why we saw three different women called up on SmackDown this week.
- The Wrestling Observer notes Vince McMahon was changing scripts around for SmackDown this week during the day Friday.
- For what it’s worth, Stephanie McMahon told Variety that WWE will have a brand new presentation with a lot of new elements when they go back out on the road in front of fans.
