Rumor Roundup: Elite Troll Punk, Thunder Rosa Returns, Lashley, More!

Speculating on pro wrestling rumors is a favorite pastime for many fans, perhaps second only to actually watching the matches. In this daily column, we take a look at the latest rumors that have been churned out by the pro wrestling rumor mill.

Important reminder: Rumors are just that – rumours. None of this has been confirmed as fact, it’s just circulating 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 Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer, there are “people close to CM Punk” who were “not happy” with the trio’s match on Dynamite where the Elite trolled Punk in Chicago.
  • F4WOnline’s Bryan Alvarez claims that while it appeared that Bobby Lashley turned heel earlier this month, he is listed in the babyface column on WWE’s internal roster.

  • Alvarez shot down the rumor that William Regal is leaving AEW to return to WWE. Speculation spread about Regal’s future after Jon Moxley told Regal to leave and never come back Dynamite. Alvarez stated that Regal “will be back” and “he wasn’t the one who left AEW.”
  • Meltzer indicated that Thunder Rosa is expected to be back in AEW around February.
  • He added that AEW’s mentality is to use an interim title if the champion is expected to be out “for a few months.” But if the champion is going to be out for six months or longer, they won’t use an interim title.
  • Per Fightful Select, Scorpio Sky has been cleared to return to the ring for “quite a while,” but AEW creative has nothing for him.
