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:
- Alexa Bliss will be off WWE television for “a few months”, says Wrestling Inc. The site doesn’t mention why, but speculation is it will be to move on from the Lilly gimmick.
- Vince McMahon is “receptive” to the idea of Dominik Mysterio donning a mask, turning heel and claiming to be superior to his dad, per WrestlingNews.co.
- “WWE is planning up to eight nights of stadium shows globally next year,” tweets Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp.
- While not all of those would be international, one figures to be in the United Kingdom. WhatCulture reports WWE is looking to run an event somewhere in the UK in Sept. 2022. They’re looking for stadiums that hold 90,000.
- Salina de la Renta confirmed she was in talks with WWE about signing earlier this year, but told Fightful “those conversations came to a halt” after former Talent Development exec Canyon Ceman was let go.
