Rumor Roundup (May 8, 2023): More Bad Bunny, Rhodes vs. Lesnar, WrestleMania location, 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:

  • WRKD Wrestling says there is already hope backstage within WWE to use Bad Bunny at SummerSlam. Everyone loved the Street Fight at Backlash.
  • They also say Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes is “far from over” and we won’t have to wait long to see what comes next there.
  • On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that Nashville is getting WrestleMania in 2027 with the opening of the new stadium there.
  • There are teases, from the likes of WRKD and BoozerRasslin, that The Way reunion could be starting up on Raw this week.
  • PW Insider says Brian Kendrick worked as a Producer alongside Jamie Noble for the Bad Bunny vs. Damian Priest match at Backlash, his first time doing so since a tryout at Survivor Series last year.
