Rumor Roundup (Feb. 14, 2022): WrestleMania 38 title match, WWE TV rights, McMahon, 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.

  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said it’s looking like Sami Zayn vs. Johnny Knoxville for the Intercontinental championship is the plan for WrestleMania 38.
  • Meltzer also speculates that Peacock could be in line to score second day rights to Raw and NXT soon, and maybe SmackDown as well.
  • Per PW Insider, Vince McMahon doesn’t think there are any issues with WWE and its creative process.
