Rumor Roundup (July 18, 2022): Bayley return, Vince McMahon stories, Ortiz, 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 PW Insider, Bayley is scheduled to be in Nashville for SummerSlam later this month.
  • Sticking with Insider, they say WSJ, who have been all over the Vince McMahon hush money story, are still pursuing more and have been trying to get in touch with former WWE performers.
  • They also say other mainstream media outlets are working on stories, notably Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.
  • Fightful Select says there are no plans to stop using Ortiz with Santana out injured for the next nine months or so.
  • Kurt Angle mentioned on his podcast on AdFreeShows that WWE has purchased the rights to his documentary and it will air on Peacock next year.
