Rumor Roundup: The Elite Troll Punk, Return of Thunder Rosa, Lashley, More!

Speculating on rumors surrounding pro wrestling is a favorite pastime for many fans, perhaps right after watching matches. In this daily column, we take a look at the latest rumors from the pro wrestling rumor mill.

Important reminder: Rumors are just that: rumours. None of this has been confirmed as fact, it’s just circulating in the pro wrestling rumor mill. We track the accuracy of rumors in a weekly feature called Rumor Look Back which you can find here. Remember, take everything with a grain of salt.

Rumors of the day:

  • According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, there are “people close to CM Punk” who were “not happy” with the trios match on dynamite where The Elite trolled Punk in Chicago.
  • F4WOnline’s Bryan Alvarez claims that while it looked like Bobby Lashley turned heel earlier this month, he is listed in the babyface column of WWE’s internal roster.

  • Alvarez has denied rumors that William Regal will be leaving AEW to return to WWE. Speculation spread over Regal’s future after Jon Moxley told Regal to leave and never return dynamite. Alvarez said Regal is “going to be back” and “he wasn’t the one leaving AEW.”
  • Meltzer indicated that Thunder Rosa should be back in AEW around February.
  • He added that the mentality of AEW is to use an interim title if the champion is expected to be out for “a few months”. But if the champion has to be out for six months or more, he won’t use an interim title.
  • Per Fightful Select, Scorpio Sky has been cleared to return to the ring for “a while,” but the AEW creative has nothing going for him.
