    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:

    • Dean Ambrose is due back “within the next month” according to PW Insider. One source told them he’ll be at SummerSlam, but didn’t confirm he’d work the show, just that he’ll return to storylines “around that timeframe”.
    • Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall filmed something at Hogan’s Beach Shop in Florida last week. Wrestling Observer says its unknown if WWE is involved. Hogan is teasing an Oct. 27 release or update for his website.
    • A Dave Meltzer comment on The Observer Board about the seriousness of Aleister Black’s groin injury has fans concerned about his availability for next weekend’s TakeOver.
    • That’s also lead to talk of a debuting Matt Riddle being used in TakeOver’s main event.
    • WWE may not be done adding to the SmackDown Women’s title match at SummerSlam. says they’ve heard Asuka could be added to make it a Fatal 4Way.

    If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you’d like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it. And check our weekly Rumor Look Back here to keep track of how often rumors turn out to be correct!

  2. If Asuka is in the match then she has to win it.

  3. Wow... as RB suggested...if Asuka is in the match...she
    basically has to win it...mainly because it will be her fourth
    main roster title shot...& just like with Nakamura...if she keeps will ruin her completely.

    Also...if Asuka is added to this will further expose
    Carmella for the in-ring hack she is.

    Its a real shame Carmella even has to be in this match as
    Becky vs. Charlotte or Asuka vs. Becky vs. Charlotte would
    be a far superior match in my opinion. long as Carmella is dropping the belt...I really
    don't care who wins...Asuka, Becky or Charlotte would all
    be better champions going forward than Clownella.

    Did you know Carmella use to be a mime...seriously.

    Of course knowing the WWE they'll put Carmella over in this
    match because she's a pretty white American with mic skills.

    Seriously WWE...Alexa & Carmella need to drop those titles...
    especially before the women's pay per view. Put the titles on
    women who can actually deliver high quality matches...not
    just pretty blondes who would be better suited to acting.

    Put the titles on Ronda & Becky & let them hold the titles
    till Survivor Series...Ronda vs. Becky would be awesome!

  4. Becky used to be a clown. She also was an air hostress.

    I don't think it will expose her. It may even give them a reason to continue to push her if the match is good. Carmella has only ever had good matches in big multi woman matches. She can just let all the other gals to the work.

    If they doing Smackdown Vs Raw then yeah. Either Asuka, Charlotte or Becky will be champ. We not going to see Ronda Vs Carmella. That's laughable.

    Carmella is just a New York version of Alexa
  5. Yes...but again...& I will continue to shout this to the Sun
    until the day I die...BECKY CAN ACTUALLY WRESTLE!!!

    So...she's basically being exposed by letting those with
    actual wrestling talent carry her through matches?

    Everything about Carmella is laughable...

    Which is something we don't need.
  6. She gets exposed no matter what. Just that she can blend in if she is in a multi woman match. Carmella singles matches expose her more
  7. Asuka is done, she's not really a priority at all anymore.. Becky will become the new champion or Carmella will retain.. I can see Carmella overcoming the odds in this match just to drop it to Becky at the following PPV... Carmella had a good run as champion, it's almost time for her to drop it.
  8. Can't think of one good thing

  9. And my point is the bitch should learn how to work a decent match
    so she doesn't have to be exposed or carried by others.

    I second this...

    Carmella has been handled terribly for her entire main roster
    career so far. Turning heel because Eva Marie took her boobs
    & went home, getting smacked around by Nikki Bella, teaming
    up with Ellsworth, hardly winning any matches for more than
    a year, only winning the MitB briefcase thanks to Ellsworth,
    doing nothing while having the briefcase, cashing in after
    the Iconics did the hard work for her & then being paired up
    with Ellsworth AGAIN to score a couple of cheap wins over

    The only thing Carmella has done of note ON HER OWN
    was defeating Charlotte at Backlash...that's it.

    Her Championship run has basically been exactly the
    same as Alexa's first SDL championship run...with Mickie
    James playing the role of Ellsworth & Becky playing the
    role of Charlotte/Asuka.

    Hell...Alexa even won her first ever title in a gimmick
    match...much like Carmella did with her cash in.

    Its like Carmella is just Alexa the WWE is trying
    to repeat the same success/booking...and it makes me

    I stand by my statement...all of Carmella's heel booking
    was originally meant for Eva Marie.

    Thanks to her main roster booking...I swear she should
    have turned heel at Wrestlemania instead of Nakamura...
    & she's not a priority because she's Japanese.

    Yes Please! Becky FTW!

    Fuck That! Give it to Becky at Summerslam!
  10. I'm sorry Grievous but you said Carmella is a pretty white American. No she's a pretty sausage skinned American

  13. I'm not sure what this means... lol
  14. My coworker is always telling me memes about New York are not a joke. That's really how things are over there

  15. No offense to anyone who lives there, but no me gusta.
  16. Tbh it sounds like a place I want to visit to verify but not live
  17. Yeah, if Asuka's being added into the match it should be to win it, otherwise I don't entirely see the point of incorporating her into the match when it doesn't seem like she's a necessary component to the story they're telling with Charlotte & Becky. I don't think he losing the fatal four way is going to do any more damage to her though, as long as she doesn't take the fall I don't see the harm but I'd rather they didn't if they weren't going to have her win. I still think if they maintained Asuka's aura post-Mania her vs. Ronda at Survivor Series would be a money match, and I do think it's still possible to re-established Asuka in time for that if they have her win at SummerSlam and resume her winning ways.
  18. I think they should just put the title on Asuka at Summer Slam. Have her hold it to Wrestle mania. Boom. She is saved
