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 says John Cena will be making his return to WWE soon, possibly on the July 23 episode of SmackDown.
  • WrestleVotes has a source telling them WWE has some cool things planned for this weekend and to expect a surprise or two.
  • For what it’s worth, Big E told talkSPORT that New Day collectively rejected an idea from Vince McMahon to break up the group after KofiMania.
  • According to Fightful Select, Bo Dallas did some work backstage with WWE not related to actual wrestling before he was released by the company.
  • Fightful also says Brian Pillman Jr.’s deal with MLW will be up soon and the Varsity Blonds are expected to be full-time with AEW moving forward.
