  • There are local advertisements now running with Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins, with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon & Mick Foley in each corner, respectively, in a Universal title match as the main event of Clash of Champions.
  • The match didn’t happen this way. Triple H was never on TV and Steph and Mick never cornered Seth. (0/1)
  • Bo Dallas is scheduled for WWE television tapings and live events next week, according to PW Insider, although that may not mean he appears on TV.
  • He was on TV and worked house shows. (1/1)

  • Dave Meltzer said he thinks there’s a good chance Paige could be done with WWE – “the fact that that story is out tells me that she is probably done with the company”.
  • Despite a second suspension, she’s still with the company. I think I’m going to sit on this for another six months and if she is still around in the fall, I’ll mark it incorrect. Because I still wouldn’t be surprised if that happens.
  • Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio he thinks Del Rio and Paige were split in the draft to send a message.
  • I honestly forgot Del Rio was still with the company at the time of the draft. New TNA champion Del Rio that is.
  • WWE is thinking about doing a cruiserweight division on SmackDown Live, but it will likely depend on the success of Raw‘s group.
  • This hasn’t happened. 205 Live is on the same night but it uses Raw’s division. (0/1)
  • Cody Rhodes is said to be working on plans to work against Katsuyori Shibata in New Japan.
  • They had a match just recently. (1/1)
  • Signing BOLA winner Marty Scurll is said to be a priority for Ring of Honor.
  • He’s the ROH television champion. (1/1)

September 7. 2016

  • It is not currently expected that Roman Reigns will be added to the Clash of Champions main event. He may end up working with Chris Jericho while waiting for Rusev to return.
  • He was not in the main event. But he was still working Rusev and never worked Jericho. (1/2)
  • Chad Gable’s knee injury is storyline and American Alpha may not miss any TV time at all.
  • This is true. They’re currently tag champs, but they do miss plenty of TV time. (1/1)
  • Stu Bennett, who worked as Wade Barrett in WWE, could be brought into Ring of Honor soon.
  • Barrett has not been doing pro-wrestling since leaving WWE. (0/1)
  • According to PW Insider, EC3 is not working with EVOLVE anymore because of his TNA contract. Meanwhile, Jeff Cobb, Matanza from Lucha Underground, could be brought in.
  • While I can’t speak to Carter’s contract, Cobb did work some EVOLVE. (1/1)

September 8, 2016

  • Jim Ross has joined Dave Meltzer in speculating Paige is possibly on her way out of WWE, and there have been whispers the 24 year old Brit has lawyers exploring her options.
  • I’m not adding this as a separate rumor since it’s speculation. But I included it to show it was a hot topic at the time.
  • As of right now, the plan is for the Usos to leave Backlash as SmackDown tag champs so the three other babyface teams from the tournament semi-finals can chase them.
  • They did not go this way and the Usos have not held the blue belts. (0/1)
  • Bo Dallas’ mini-push is to make him a more respectable opponent for Bin Wang in Shanghai and isn’t expected to last.
  • It surely didn’t last. (1/1)
  • WWE Developmental has signed the first members of a new class, according to SquaredCircleSirens. Tough Enough tryout Victoria Gonzalez, amateur wrestler Max Wessell and MMA fighter Alvin Abitz are expected to report with a new group to the Performance Center in October.
  • WWE announced this class in October. Max Wessell was not one of those announced. They other two were. (2/3)

September 9, 2016

  • If FrontRowBrian is to be believed, Paige has quit WWE and she has hired legal representation to help get her out of her contract.
  • This is not true since she’s still with the company and has mentioned so. (0/1)
  • Not surprisingly, the plan does appear to be to have Cesaro vs. Sheamus go the distance in their best-of-7 series with the final match happening at Clash of Champions.
  • They did. It ended in a tie. (1/1)
  • Don’t be surprised if Heath Slater and Rhyno win the SmackDown Live tag team title tournament.
  • I was a bit surprised. But it was awesome. (1/1)
  • Cody Rhodes can’t use the “Rhodes” name if he’s doing a television show, according to the Observer. There are apparently still talks going on with WWE, however.
  • I can’t speak about the talks, but he doesn’t use “Rhodes” on Ring of Honor or TNA. (1/1)

September 10, 2016

  • Whether or not Paige is gone from WWE is apparently up in the air right now, with the story changing day by day, according to the Observer. They compared it to her being in the AJ Lee spot after CM Punk left but without the legal action. Meanwhile, PW Insider has said there are no plans for Paige even after her suspension comes up.
  • This is when the Paige and Del Rio rumors started coming in droves. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: Sean Rueter LOVED them. He still loves talking about it so feel free to ask him about these love birds.
  • Apparently there were multiple performers within WWE who were upset at the Sasha Banks fake retirement promo/angle that ran on Raw this week.
  • Because it wasn’t set up well at all?
  • WWE has plans to make Lana a “much larger character” on Total Divas upcoming season, notes the Observer.
  • Isn’t this her first season? I’m not entirely sure what this rumor is implying.
  • WWE wants to do NXT TakeOver specials in conjunction with the big four events: Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series.
  • Yeah, that’s how they’re doing things. (1/1)
