Rumor Roundup (May 22, 2023): Seth Rollins, Bianca Belair heel turn, Cameron Grimes 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:

  • Seth Rollins is currently heavily favored to win the world heavyweight championship at Night of Champions, via BetOnline.
  • According to BWE, WWE has plans to turn Bianca Belair & Street Profits heel, likely sometime this summer.
  • Fightful Select notes there are “several people backstage” at WWE who have “high hopes” for Cameron Grimes on the main roster.
  • PW Insider says there is a belief that the “leveling up of the AEW International Championship months ago was in part to raise the profile of the title so it can be used regularly on Collision.”
  • They also say that Andrade was backstage at Dynamite recently preparing for his return, so his acting like he didn’t know better on Twitter was indeed just an act.
