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:
- PW Insider says Zelina Vega is back full time with WWE going forward. They also say she was at SmackDown last week but well hidden enough that it didn’t get out.
- Wrestling Inc says Vince McMahon’s much publicized visit to the Performance Center led to some unease among talent there but Fightful Select notes most of the wrestlers didn’t even end up seeing him much while he was there.
- Xavier Woods asked for a week off and that’s why WWE did the injury angle in the Hell in a Cell match, says the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
- The expectation is there will be a Raw tag team title match added to Money in the Bank, and a women’s tag title match may also be scheduled for the show.
- Per the Observer, Karrion Kross, Toni Storm, Shotzi Blackheart, and Odyssey Jones all worked dark matches before SmackDown this week.
