Rumor Roundup (Sept. 29, 2021): WWE Draft plans, NXT, SummerSlam 2022 location, more!

New, comments

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 Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the key guys being drafted have been decided on and the two networks have been made aware by WWE but nothing else is decided at this point and everything could change.
  • He also said there are supposed to be people getting drafted from NXT to freshen up both brands but that, too, could change before the draft actually happens.
  • Per talkSPORT, WWE is planning to hold SummerSlam 2022 in the United Kingdom, likely at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
  • According to the Observer, AEW is taping a big match for Rampage at Dynamite this week that is being kept a surprise.
  • For what it’s worth, Ariane Andrew told Wrestling Inc she contacted Vince McMahon personally about returning to the company but it’s unclear if it’s going to happen.
