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 legitimate news or 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:
- Goldberg’s WWE deal gives him control of his promos, Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Live. His promo on this week’s SmackDown was his own words and not a script.
- Adam Cole and Shayna Baszler are names that’ve been discussed as the next NXT call-ups, according to Dave Meltzer on Observer Radio.
- The Brock Lesnar beatdown angle was not a way to write Seth Rollins off Super ShowDown, says PW Insider. Rollins will appear in Jeddah.
- They also say Sin Cara, Humberto Carrillo and Big E are booked for Friday in Saudi Arabia.
- The WWE 2K20 ad campaign will feature a lot of current and former Superstars, per WrestleVotes. “Mega money” is being spent, and names like Austin, Flair & Hogan are said to be involved in something like the NFL 100 commercial.
