Rumor Roundup (Mar. 2, 2023): Vince pushing Lesnar/Omos, Regal role, King & Queen of the Ring, 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:

  • Insider also says NXT will tape its Mar. 28 Stand & Deliver go home episode in Orlando along with Mar. 21’s live broadcast. That way the team can focus on getting to Los Angeles and getting set up for the brand’s WrestleMania weekend event.
