The wrestling world has seen many changes over the past few months. Many things have progressed in a way WWE would like, but there are plenty that go in the opposite direction. Both Vince McMahon and Triple H have seen rumors break and annoy them for different reasons. The current landscape of WWE with McMahon running the company and making the decisions is a bit different due to Triple H looming waiting to takeover. Triple H has a new approach to wrestling that is seen with some of his talent signings and the overall presentation of NXT.
McMahon and Triple H likely look at wrestling stories from different viewpoints due to each man’s role in the company right now. Some of the rumors make Vince look terrible and show that he may need to step aside sooner than later. Others put Triple H in a bad place given his contributions and eventual desire when running WWE. Rumors from both sides will be examined as all paint WWE in a negative light. The company would rather see all of these rumors get lost and forgotten. These are eleven current wrestling rumors that Vince McMahon doesn’t want you to know about along with another five that Triple H doesn’t want you to know about.
16 Vince: Bullet Club Has Vince Rattled
The Bullet Club has become the hottest wrestling entity outside of WWE in many years. This current incarnation of Bullet Club with Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, Marty Scurll and the Young Bucks leading the way has reached new peaks. Hot Topic has gone all in on Bullet Club merchandise as its top sellers and now has expanded into other merchandise for 2018.
15 Vince: Nia Jax Walked Out On WWE
There is a new rumor regarding the status of Nia Jax. After months of being a vocal point in the Women's Division, Jax has been off television for a few weeks. The rumor indicates that Nia chose to walk out on WWE and that’s why she hasn’t been seen. There is no indication as to why Jax is off television and not appearing on live events anymore, but WWE is obviously aware of it.
14 Triple H: Wrestlers Upset About Jimmy Jacobs Firing
The firing of Jimmy Jacobs is one of the biggest stories regarding WWE despite Jacobs not being an on-screen performer. Jacobs was viewed as one of the more popular writers backstage. Most WWE wrestlers hate working with the writers that have no experience in the wrestling business. Jacobs had the perfect middle ground of being a creative writer and understanding wrestling.
13 Vince: The Shield Reuniting to Trick Fans Into Cheering Roman Reigns
The recent reunion of The Shield has given WWE some of the biggest crowd ovations and most viewed uploaded videos in recent memory. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose have been teaming since Summerslam. Roman Reigns joining them has officially united the group heading into TLC for a match against The Miz, Braun Strowman, Kane, Sheamus and Cesaro.
12 Vince: Maryse & Maria Not Planning To Return
Two women on the WWE roster with similar roles ended up having their first pregnancy in the same time period. Maryse is the real life wife and the wrestling manager of The Miz. Maria Kanellis is the real life wife and the wrestling manager of Mike Kanellis. Both ladies have been stopped appearing on television or at live events for WWE due to being pregnant.
11 Triple H: Neville Leaving Because Of Cruiserweight Division
The Cruiserweight Division idea initially saw Triple H start the Cruiserweight Classic. It was a huge hit with many wrestlers standing out and countless great matches. Triple H has stated he wanted to make it its own brand as a show on WWE Network. Vince McMahon stepped in and decided to put in on Raw along with creating the 205 Live show.
10 Vince: WWE Ended Baron Corbin's Punishment Early
Baron Corbin snapping at one of the WWE doctors backstage caused him to lose the Money in the Bank title shot. John Cena then destroyed him at Summerslam. Corbin appeared to be in the doghouse and in line for a major punishment. One of the wrestlers humiliating a doctor in front of the locker room is something WWE wanted to send a message with, showing it would not be tolerated.
9 Vince: Locker Room Primarily Anti-Politics
One rumor to break recently featured Big Cass being disliked by the locker room before getting injured. Everyone knew Enzo Amore was hated, but Cass joined him due to political beliefs of all things. Dave Meltzer reported that Cass was disliked for being a vocal and an avid supporter of the President. According to the rumor, the majority of the locker room strongly disliked him for it.
8 Triple H: Vince Never Wants War Games On Main Roster
The news of NXT bringing War Games for their next TakeOver special is a huge game changer. Fans reacted overwhelmingly positive online and NXT TakeOver: War Games is now one of the most anticipated shows in NXT history. Triple H has always been a fan of WCW’s concept of the double ring/double cage match pitting teams against each other.
7 Vince: Dolph Ziggler Getting Ready To Leave WWE Soon
Dolph Ziggler’s current act is one of the lamest characters WWE has tried to push in quite some time. It is obvious that Ziggler is currently being used to put over Bobby Roode as a new face. Ziggler is reportedly getting ready to leave WWE when his contract expires at the end of the year. No one views Dolph as a credible top name and he is destined to remain a secondary performer for the rest of his career in WWE.
6 Vince: 205 Live Numbers Still Tanking With Enzo
The 205 Live show is apparently a Vince McMahon show. All reports indicate McMahon is the one to come up with the stories and characters for the show. That may be the reason why 205 Live is such a disaster after the Cruiserweight Classic was a success. Triple H presented the guys in a way that showcased their strengths and hid their weaknesses. The opposite is being done on 205 Live.
5 Triple H: Gail Kim Turned Down WWE Deal
Gail Kim is one of the greatest North American women’s wrestlers despite never getting utilized well by WWE. Vince McMahon’s sexist and borderline racist views doomed her during her two tenures in the company. TNA helped showcase the talent of Gail to make you wonder why WWE never did anything with her. Things have changed in recent years with WWE treating the women’s division with respect.
4 Vince: Jinder Mahal Not That Popular in India
The monster push for Jinder Mahal comes due to Vince McMahon believing in him. McMahon’s support has seen Mahal go from a jobber to WWE Champion out of nowhere in May. The title reign is becoming a lengthy one for Jinder lasting all summer and now likely going through the fall. One of the benefits for this is Mahal appealing to the Indian market.
3 Vince: Multiple Wrestlers Asking Cody Rhodes How to Quit WWE
Cody Rhodes has become the model example as to how to succeed after leaving WWE. The decision was Cody’s when he requested WWE allow him out of his contract to work on the independent circuit. Rhodes is now the ROH Champion, a Bullet Club member and making significantly more money than he did during his WWE days.
2 Triple H: Enhancement Allegations By Nutritionist
Another recent story that Triple H wants to forget about deals with his former nutritionist making the claim that Hunter is one of the many not to get tested by the WWE. Of course, such news really isn’t too shocking but the fact that it was said in the first place is clearly alarming, and something the WWE doesn’t want to hear, especially due to the fact it takes its testing very seriously.
1 Vince McMahon: Daniel Bryan Planning In-Ring Return for ROH Final Battle 2018
The biggest mystery in wrestling right now surrounds the future of Daniel Bryan. WWE has no interest in clearing him as their doctors believe he isn’t fit to compete. Bryan wants to wrestle again and is not shy about counting down the days to his contract ending. The timing of his contract expiring in September of 2018 is fascinating for one major reason.
WWE usually has a three-month no-compete clause. Bryan would be able to wrestle for another promotion in December of 2018. This means he would likely be free to compete at Ring of Honor’s biggest show of the year – Final Battle. The Young Bucks recently teased something big for Final Battle 2018. Bryan has teased returning to ROH. Considering NXT’s biggest competition is ROH on the touring market, this would be horrible news for both Vince and even Triple H.
