Rumor Roundup (July 21, 2021): Bray Wyatt return, Karrion Kross loss, Rhea Ripley, 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:

  • According to PW Insider, there is still no timetable for Bray Wyatt’s return to WWE. They say he’s “being held off for a specific reason” but the belief is it’s not a creative thing.
  • Fightful Select says there was a lot of frustration backstage at NXT over the decision to have Karrion Kross lose his first match on Monday Night Raw.
  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer speculated that it was Vince McMahon sending a message of some sort but it’s unclear what that message is.
  • PW Insider notes that Rhea Ripley is a babyface now and it’s been made clear internally in WWE that she should be treated as such moving forward.
  • Insider also says Keith Lee is officially back on the Raw roster and fully cleared to return to full time performing.
