Ronda Rousey Return Expected Soon

Ronda Rousey left WWE following WrestleMania and stated publicly that she was on an “impregnation vacation” with her husband. While there has been no update on her personal life at present, Sportskeeda is reporting that the former Women’s Champion, who is still contracted to WWE until 2021, could make her return much sooner than expected so that she can work with Paul Heyman on Monday Night Raw as soon as he takes the reins full-time.

WWE Wants Donald Trump On SmackDown Live

SmackDown Live makes the move over to FOX network on October 4th, but while the switch is causing the company a number of issues when it comes to their upcoming Saudi Arabia show, once SmackDown will be on Friday nights, the company has some huge plans for the switch.

A number of names have already been touted including The Rock and Steve Austin, but Sportkeeda is now reporting that WWE could be hoping that President Donald Trump could make an appearance. Trump and Vince McMahon are said to be close friends, so this isn’t seen as that far fetched since he did once appear as part of The Battle Of The Billionaires at WrestleMania 23.

WWE Draft Expected To Take Place After SummerSlam

WWE’s brand split has essentially come to an end at this point, but the company is still pushing forward their Wild Card Rule when superstars of the opposite brand appear. Despite the fact that superstars can now move from brand to brand, Slice Wrestling is reporting that the company could be planning another WWE Draft following SummerSlam which would help Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff kick-start their careers in charge of WWE’s respective main roster brands.

Bray Wyatt Teasing WWE Return?

Bray Wyatt hasn’t been seen on WWE TV since The Firefly Funhouse came to an end a few weeks ago. Instead, his puppets have been popping up backstage on both Raw and SmackDown, which shows that he wasn’t the only one who managed to escape.

Vince McMahon is reportedly working very closely with Wyatt when it comes to his new character, which could be why it’s taken so long for him to make his in-ring return, but Wyatt himself could be teasing a return this week on Raw to partner Roman Reigns with the following Tweet.

Big E Heel Turn Could Finally Be Coming

Ever since Kofi Kingston became WWE Champion, it was only a matter of time before either Xavier Woods or Big E turned on him and created a whole new storyline dynamic. Originally, Big E was the member of The New Day that WWE wanted to push towards the WWE Championship, but Kofi’s recent rise in popularity has changed WWE’s mind, but that doesn’t mean that Big E won’t get his chance.

According to Joe Peisich on the Barnburner Radio, Big E is the star expected to turn on his brothers in the coming weeks.

“Big E, there are several rumors going around, Big E may be turning heel. Yes, E’ may be turning heel in the WWE,” he said via Ringsidenews.

Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins Set To Lead The Charge For Change In WWE Locker Room

Even though AEW’s weekly television show doesn’t debut for another few months, WWE is seemingly already at war with their latest competition and according to a report by Brad Shepard, Vince McMahon is now cracking down on the Social Media use of his superstars.

The WWE Chairman no longer wants his talent to like updates about AEW or even Tweet about their competition, and Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns are now set to lead the charge for change in the WWE locker room.

As ever, wrestling fans are reminded that the above are just rumors and should not be taken at face value as facts.
