Rumor Roundup (July 7, 2021): Jimmy Uso situation, AEW plans, Roderick Strong deal, 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:

  • For whatever it’s worth, WrestleVotes says a few high level people in WWE are pissed off about the latest Jimmy Uso DUI arrest.
  • Having said that, Dave Meltzer said there is no actual fallout “at this point” but decisions will be made soon.
  • According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the idea going forward from AEW is to hold loaded Dynamite shows every single week.
  • Per Fightful Select, Roderick Strong recently signed a new deal with WWE and they have big plans for him in NXT throughout the rest of the year.
  • The Observer says WWE trademarked various spellings for the new Nikki A.S.H. character, including Nikki Ashe, Nikki Aash, and Nikkiash.
