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:

  • There’s a lot of speculation, including from Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio, that we could see a double-turn in Hell in a Cell’s SmackDown women’s title match Sunday.
  • Chris Jericho told Busted Open there’s a chance he’ll work the New Japan/ROH show at Madison Square Garden next WrestleMania weekend, turning up the volume on talk it’s just a matter of time before he works another non-WWE show in the U.S.
  • On Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer clarified Mick Foley is not allowed to take any bumps while refereeing the Roman Reigns/Braun Strowman Cell match. A reason he was booked for the role was to promote the one-man show premiering on WWE Network immediately after the PPV.
  • Carmella’s apparent face turn is for Mixed Match Challenge. It’s undecided at this point if she’ll remain paired with R-Truth or a babyface after they’re eliminated from the Facebook show.
  • PW Insider is sticking to their story that Edge will appear on SmackDown 1000, saying the Hall of Famer only played coy with a fan on Twitter so WWE could announce it first.
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.

I love that photo...

*Sigh*


There’s a lot of speculation, including from Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Radio, that we could see a double-turn in Hell in a Cell’s SmackDown women’s title match Sunday.
So...Becky turns back face...even if she has been one
since SummerSlam anyway & Charlotte turns heel...a
role she is better suited to.

Wait...if Charlotte is turning heel...that most likely means
she will cheat to retain? Or at least get herself DQ'd.

Ugh...

Just put the title on Becky already!

On Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer clarified Mick Foley is not allowed to take any bumps while refereeing the Roman Reigns/Braun Strowman Cell match. A reason he was booked for the role was to promote the one-man show premiering on WWE Network immediately after the PPV.
Ugh...

Pointless.

SKIP!!!

Carmella’s apparent face turn is for Mixed Match Challenge. It’s undecided at this point if she’ll remain paired with R-Truth or a babyface after they’re eliminated from the Facebook show.
So it a temporary face turn?

Well...if Charlotte does turn heel...one of the heels
will need to turn face to keep the roster balanced.

I just want Carmella to go away.

She should go model swimwear or something...
that profession would suit her perfectly.

So Becky will become a Face and Charlotte a heel? Oh, you mean it should have been all the damn time.

Jericho a the G1 Supercard would be amazing.

Yeah, we all knew that...

How in the hell do you make Carmella a face?

Eh, Edge will appear and it will cool.

A unicycle really?
Yep...

You said, "I swear I would buy Alexa & Carmella ball gags if I knew they would use them."
I know...

My reply to that would be. Do you know how many people's fantasy you would invoke from putting them in ball gags?
I don't care about that. My fantasy is not hearing their voices.

*Thinks*

Honestly...I think Bayley would be the most fun to play "tied up" with.
