Rumor Roundup (Oct. 4, 2023): CM Punk hints, Royal Rumble winners, Jade Cargill plans, 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:

  • For what it’s worth, BWE has teased that WWE is making subtle hints at CM Punk during promos/interviews on WWE television, like during the Seth Rollins interview this past Monday night.
  • BWE also claims “a few names discussed” regarding potential men’s Royal Rumble winners early next year while there are “two solid winners” on the women’s side.
  • Per PW Insider, Jade Cargill is expected to be on the Monday Night Raw roster when she debuts for WWE, which could happen by the end of the month.
  • They also say she will be at the Fastlane event in Indianapolis this coming weekend, though it’s unclear if that means she’ll be making an appearance on the show.
  • Fightful Select notes that Sami Callihan’s Impact Wrestling contract was supposed to be up in December 2022 but the company extended it due to a leg injury.
  • Johnny Gargano’s return on Raw this week to reunite with Tommaso Ciampa was a “late WWE Creative decision,” says PW Insider. They note “plans were locked towards the end of the weekend.”
