Rumor Roundup (Sept. 8, 2021): Kevin Owens contract, Bray Wyatt, Bryan Danielson theme, 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 Fightful, Kevin Owens’ contract with WWE will come up in January 2022 after his deal was restructured ahead of the pandemic.
  • Ringside News claims Bray Wyatt and AEW have had talks and the current expectation is he will sign there when his no compete clause is up.
  • Per the Observer, AEW tried to acquire the rights to “The Final Countdown” for Bryan Danielson’s entrance theme but Europe wanted too much money.
  • SI says Adam Cole verbally gave his word but didn’t sign his new AEW deal until the day of All Out.
  • claims there are no plans for Tessa Blanchard to sign with WWE, AEW, or even with some indie promotions because no one wants near her right now.
