Rumor Roundup (Nov. 9, 2022): Sheamus return, War Games craziness, Austin Theory, 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:

  • PW Insider says Sheamus is scheduled to be back out on the road with WWE as of this coming Friday night’s episode of SmackDown.
  • Per Bryan Alvarez, WWE is planning to do some “crazy” things in the WarGames matches at Survivor Series, in part because they need new footage for video packages.
  • Ringside News claims they have someone within WWE saying that Austin Theory’s failed Money in the Bank cash-in wasn’t to take him out of the picture and there’s actually optimism about him backstage.
  • Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer heard that a match at Full Gear 2022 between The Elite and Death Triangle for the AEW world trios titles is “probable but not 100 percent.”
  • WON on themed WWE PPVs: “Regarding rumors of concept changes in PPVs next year, the only thing we were told was as a general rule there will be less themed PPVs.”
