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:

  • Like last week, the creative team didn’t finish writing SmackDown until roughly an hour before the show went on the air, says Bryan Alvarez.
  • According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are no plans to hotshot a big money title match for Roman Reigns with John Cena or Goldberg right now, despite the lack of challengers for him. Daniel Bryan could very well be next in line.
  • The Observer notes that several talent have already talked to Andrew Yang about WWE forcing talent to get rid of Twitch while others are just upset about it.
  • Xia Li was apparently upset with WWE over pulling her from an amateur fight she was going to do and per Fightful she went straight to Triple H and told him about it. She also apparently has frustrations about her lack of use on NXT television.
  • Per PW Insider, Fallah Bahh has signed a new deal with Impact Wrestling.
