WWE Rumor Roundup – Massive first-time-ever match for Roman Reigns delayed, Top name disrespected Bray Wyatt backstage over his physique, Update on former star’s relationship with Triple H

Date:

Welcome to Sportskeeda Wrestling’s daily WWE Rumor Roundup, where we collect all the top stories from the dirt plates.

Roman Reigns is still WWE’s undisputed top executive, despite fans regularly having doubts about the future of his historic title reign. However, recent updates suggest that WWE could save a huge match for Survivor Series as it could be one of its toughest challenges.

Bray Wyatt’s name has also been discussed since Triple H took over. We end the latest rumor round with a comprehensive report on the status of the former universal champion.


#1. WWE’s Roman Reigns vs. Karrion Kross

The reintroduction of Karrion Kross to WWE TV has given Roman Reigns another credible title challenger to worry about on SmackDown.

Kross is positioned as the #2 heel on the brand behind Reigns, and they are expected to clash in the future. However, the highly anticipated match may not take place until Survivor Series, as Dave Meltzer revealed in the Wrestling Observer newsletter.

It was said that if WWE decides to continue with Kross vs. Reigns, this will most likely appear on TV or on the Survivor Series map. Here’s an excerpt:

“Reigns is currently not booked at Extreme Rules in Philadelphia. If they play Reigns vs. Going to Kross, as things stand now, would it be TV or the first Survivor series, except for the weekly circumstances involved in wrestling,” Meltzer said.

The Tribal Chief will not be competing in Extreme Rules in October and may not be available for Survivor Series until November.

At Clash at the Castle, Reigns will defend his title against Drew McIntyre. However, the showdown could yield another significant return, as Drew McIntyre recently teased!


#2. Details Of Backstage Trouble Between Bray Wyatt And Vince McMahon

Bray Wyatt was one of the most established stars on the roster before his departure. However, his deteriorating relationship with Vince McMahon may have led to his unfortunate demise in the company.

Fightful Select reports that Vince McMahon “just finished” with Bray Wyatt before he was released in 2021. A talent close to the situation said it reached a point where Vince McMahon personally resented Bray Wyatt.

Rumors also state that Vince McMahon would often yell derogatory things directly at Bray Wyatt regarding the superstar’s physique. The dressing room believes McMahon’s disrespectful comments were in response to Bray Wyatt’s criticism of a lack of creative direction for his storytelling and character.

Shortly after Bray Wyatt was released, speculation about his alleged “bad attitude” began to surface online, which apparently came from people in Vince McMahon’s inner circle.

The company might have done it to shed the heat of releasing a prominent name like Wyatt, as talent working with Bray Wyatt shot down rumors of his attitude because he was always considered a great colleague.

McMahon was never in favor of getting Wyatt back, as the former CEO had “reserved” when the superstar’s name came up in recent months. During his time in WWE, Bray Wyatt spoke of his creative frustrations, and Vince McMahon saw it as the wrestler who was “hard to deal with.”


#3. Can Bray Wyatt Return Under Triple H’s Regime?

Now all roads seem to lead to Bray Wyatt’s WWE return. How is Wyatt’s relationship with the new boss, Triple H?

Fightful called it a “clean state” and stated that Triple H is willing to work with anyone who can add value. The belief is that Triple H will overlook any issues Vince McMahon had with Bray Wyatt and try to book him better if he chooses to return.

While Bray Wyatt is one of the most famous former stars being discussed for a comeback, RingSideNews reported that there had been no confirmed conversations so far. However, the creative team was informed about Wyatt and the possibility of him re-signing for the promotion.

“His name was mentioned to certain creative team members as a prelude to whether or not discussions are going on and that the rumor mill is spinning. It was like an affirmation or a denial of discussions.”

Bray Wyatt’s name has been pitched internally for a return, and judging by Triple H’s recent signings spree, you can safely bet on the return of the Eater of Worlds.


We asked Bret Hart what he thought of Vince McMahon retiring here?
