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:

  • On his Living The Gimmick podcast, Jon Alba said his WWE sources tell him “there is very much an internal belief [Kevin] Owens is gone at the end of his WWE deal.”
  • Owens tweeted and deleted the coordinates to Mt. Rushmore, the group he formed with The Young Bucks & Adam Cole in ROH and PWG, leading to the obvious speculation about AEW.
  • There’s heat behind-the-scenes at WWE on people who “fell asleep at the wheel” regarding a number of expiring contracts, says Fightful Select.
  • KO’s situation is said to be different from those of Adam Cole and Pete Dunne, the Fightful report goes on to say. WWE officials have been aware of Owens deal ending in January of next year.
  • The Jon Moxley vs. Nick Gage feud in GCW is not a one-off, per bodyslam.net. The two will have a series of matches leading to a blow off at the indie’s WrestleMania week show next year.
