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:

  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that most of the feuds we are seeing on television right now are expected to extend through SummerSlam.
  • Randy Orton vs. Drew McIntyre could end up being one of the top title matches on that show.
  • EVIL aligned with The Bullet Club to establish a top heel while the New Japan roster outside of the country is gone due to the pandemic, says Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio.
  • Meltzer also said that Kenny Omega’s booking in AEW is largely because he was always set to be built as a big star in his second year.
  • Per WWE Network News, WWE is going to add content to the Undertaker: The Last Ride section on July 19, though it’s unclear what exactly it will be.
