Rumor Roundup (Aug. 29, 2022): AEW turmoil, Vince Russo, WWE belt changes, more!

All Elite Wrestling

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 the Observer, there is turmoil within AEW but it’s “not as much as people think.”
  • Vince Russo is now claiming he was consulting for USA Network overseeing Monday Night Raw for two years, from WrestleMania in 2020 up to this past WrestleMania.
  • There is apparently word going around, via BeltFanDan, that Triple H could be making “numerous belt design changes.”
  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said AEW is “serious” about doing a women’s show but it’s unclear when that may come to fruition.
  • PW Insider says the Good Brothers are already working up plans for Talkin’ Shop A Mania 3, but no date is set for it just yet. They also say WWE made overtures to the two but they were asking for a lot and talks dissipated.
