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:
- According to Fightful, Roman Reigns returning to WWE immediately was completely his decision. Vince McMahon was the first to learn he was cancer-free, and only Vince, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, Kevin Dunn and Michele Wilson knew until Monday morning.
- Before his leukemia diagnosis caused him to vacate the Universal title, Fightful’s sources tell them Reigns had already informed Vince he didn’t want to work Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
- Dean Ambrose made the call to not join Seth Rollins on-stage after Reigns’ comeback announcement. Fightful also says the decision to have Roman and Seth save Dean after his loss to Drew McIntyre “was made shortly after Reigns’ announcement.”
- WrestleMania 36 is “locked in” for April 5, 2020 at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, according to WrestleVotes.
- Per PW Insider, court documents in the Global Force vs. Impact legal battle agree that master copies for all 16 hours of GFW’s never-broadcast TV show Amped were deleted while in Impact’s possession. Jeff Jarrett wants the $4.8 million he says they were worth. Impact says they deleted them in the “normal course of business” so they could “free up storage space.”
