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:
- Fightful Select notes higher ups at WWE told them and “top talent” that as of right now WWE is “not currently in talks with CM Punk about a return.”
- Nick Hausman followed that up by saying he spoke to a source close to Punk himself “who very much gave me the impression the two sides are not working on his return to the company.” UPDATE: More on this here.
- According to PW Insider, it is believed Jack Perry is no longer on an indefinite suspension but AEW is “in no rush to bring him back.”
- While there were rumors of Velveteen Dream being seen at the Performance Center, Fightful says WWE has no interest in signing him at this time.
- Bandido is expected to be fully cleared in a few weeks, according to the Wrestling Observer.
- Big if true: Pro wrestling is great fun and you don’t have to cheer for one promotion over another. A rising tide lifts all boats! Last night ruled, and we should hope it can always be that great!
