As we do every week, our goal is to keep readers up to date on some of the biggest rumors circulating around professional wrestling and the WWE. This week is no exception, especially with some recent WWE releases, a big mixed-brand pay-per-view, and some major absences from WWE programming.
This week, we look at a couple rumored WWE Superstars that might be unhappy and leaving, how and why Survivor Series is shaping up the way it is and a WWE star getting a brand new contract.
Here are the five biggest rumors surrounding WWE for the last week of October into the first week of November.
5. Sin Cara Gets A New Deal
If the fact that Sin Cara is all of a sudden getting a push on WWE programming comes as a surprise to many fans, it could be explained by the fact that a new deal was signed between Sin Cara and the WWE on a multi-year contract extension.
As per PW Insider, his newfound success could be a direct result of that new deal and a thank you by the WWE for sticking with the company and another attempt by WWE to turn his character into a star that they'd expected him to be when he first came on the scene.
4. Ziggler Looking At Another Big Change?
Dolph Ziggler lost another big match, this time against Bobby Roode on SmackDown Live in a two-out-of-three falls contest. He was interviewed by WWE.com and Ziggler hinted that it's time he rethinks his career as a professional wrestler since he can't back up his words in the ring against the best WWE has to offer.
Is this the introduction of another big character change for Ziggler or will he be taking off from WWE for a while?
3. Babyfaces To Dominate Survivor Series
If you're watching the teams for Survivor Series unfold, you may start to notice a trend. So far, almost every team member for the main event matches that include the traditional Survivor Series rules include babyfaces as part of the teams.
Apparently, WWE is doing this for a reason. The company is hoping that no one distinctly chooses a side and that both teams are favorites among the fans heading into the pay-per-view. It's the same reason Shane McMahon is spending so much time on SmackDown Live defending his invasion of Raw.
2. Kurt Angle Versus Triple H At WrestleMania 34
Kurt Angle's recent return to the ring and his involvement in Survivor Series appears all to be part of a bigger plan to get him into a matchup against Triple H at WrestleMania 34. Stephanie McMahon's recent lashing of Angle on Raw is also said to be part of that storyline and the beginning of the reasoning behind Triple H's eventual return.
This could be a hint that Angle's team loses at Survivor Series and he is fired as general manager of Raw following the pay-per-view.
1. Gallows and Anderson Leaving WWE
After their embarrassing Trick or Street Fight match at Raw this past Monday, fans are starting to get irritated with how the WWE is booking Gallows and Anderson and ignoring their respectable legacy from Japan and as part of the Bullet Club. Speculation is that Gallows and Anderson aren't too happy about it either.
After that match both WWE Superstars removed any reference to WWE on their social media accounts. It has led to speculation that their time in WWE may be coming to a close.
