If you are anything like us, WWE rumors are just as fun as the matches and storylines themselves. Fans everywhere love to talk about who is getting the next push, who is getting buried, or which surprise appearance might be next.

In this ongoing feature, we will detail all the latest WWE rumors circulating the internet. Feel free to yell at us about them in the comments. Enjoy!

Note to reader: It should go without saying, but these are all rumors. Absolutely, positively nothing that follows is guaranteed to be true in any way. In fact, everything you’re about to read could be hilariously false. Like the WWE itself, wrestling rumors are for entertainment and fun, and should not be taken overly seriously by anyone. Ever.

WWE Looking to Extend Their Contract With Saudi Arabia

WWE and Saudi Arabia have had such a bittersweet relationship. The good thing (for WWE!) is that WWE is getting paid a ton of money for hosting events in Saudi Arabia. That is a big reason why WWE has maintained this relationship and now, they may be looking to extend the contract.

While WWE and Saudi Arabia’s contract does not expire until 2028, it is telling that they’re already looking to extend. Mark Shapiro, the president of Endeavor, stated that they want to focus on their partnerships, including strengthening the deal with Saudi Arabia. A big mention was the topic of extending it.

The chairman of Saudi General Entertainment Authority even talked about enhancing the deal with WWE and his plan is to get a marquee event like Royal Rumble or WrestleMania. I’m guessing they’re not willing to count the 50 Man Royal Rumble that Braun Strowman won and got that green title for.

However, it is something to keep an eye on as this partnership could be continuing in the future. My question is what the length of the deal will be. We already know that this will be a lot of money, but what about the length of it as that will be key.

Finn Balor Demon Could Return To WWE

Before Finn Balor became a part of the Judgment Day, the one thing that stood out with him is his alter ego the Demon. it is a shame how WWE botched the demon when Vince Booked it and ever since WrestleMania 39 against Edge inside Hell in a Cell. We have not seen the Demon Finn Balor alter ego in awhile. However, there is speculation that it might return.

On Raw, there was a notable easter egg as while Finn Balor was preparing for his match, in the background there were a ton of items. A notable one is a case where the Demon paint was on it. Just look at it below.

 This has led to a ton of speculations and there is a rumor that WWE could be planning the Demon’s return. Are we overthinking this or could this be done on purpose? Only time will tell.

Dexter Lumis To Reappear With a New Look

It has been commonly rumored that Dexter Lumis will be involved in the Uncle Howdy group. Something interesting is that Dexter Lumis is planning to reappear with a new look as well. A recent photo has been leaked of him and he looks different. Just look at some of the new photos below where he has longer hair and a beard.

It is a much needed change after his first main roster appearance was a flop. He needed a gimmick change. Honestly before the Wyatt 6 stuff started, I forgot that Dexter Lumis was still employed with WWE and I can’t remember when he last wrestled/appeared in WWE. Hopefully with this new look and potential gimmick change, Lumis will shine on the main roster.

Peyton Royce Interested In a Surprise Return/Appearance In The Future

IIf you were to tell me one female wrestler that was released during the pandemic that shocked me the most, I would easily name Peyton Royce on that list. Ever since being released she had a brief appearance on Impact Wrestling but hasn’t done a lot since leaving WWE

However, there are some rumors that Peyton Royce does have interest in returning to WWE. Potentially making an appearance in the company is more likely and there have been talks of a possible Royal Rumble appearance in the works early.

Honestly, Peyton Royce was one of my hidden gem favorite pro wrestlers during her time in NXt and pat of her time on the main roster. I was shocked WWE did not give her a bigger chance as a singles run and I was shocked WWE released her during the pandemic.

Royce was clearly the much better wrestler in the IIconics tag team, because Billie Kay is terrible. I never was a fan of Kay at all during her time with the company and she got worse when the IIconics broke up. I doubt that Peyton Royce will be a full time pro wrestler because she is raising two kids with Shawn Spears.

This is more of a long term rumor and time will tell if it is true. However, I would like to see Royce make an appearance in NXT. Especially as NXT Superstar Shawn Spears is her husband and I think seeing her in NXT either backstage or in the crowd would be super cool.

Gulia’s WWE In Ring Debut Could Be Pushed To 2025

The injury bug has really been biting WWE lately. Just look at the King of the Ring and Queen of the Ring Tournaments, so many pro wrestlers had to pull out due to an injury. Well there is another injury that WWE has right now.

Gulia who was expected to make an appearance with WWE on the NXT Brand, will unfortunately not be happening anytime soon. She suffered a broken wrist in a tag team match at Marigold’s inaugural show, “Marigold Fields Forever,” at Tokyo’s Korakuen Hall on May 20. if you don’t know Marigold is owned by Rossy Ogawa and he has a really good relationship with Gulia and WWE.

Broken Wrist injuries can vary, but there is a very big chance her debut with WWE in NXT is going to be pushed until 2025. it could be a blessing in disguise as this can give Gulia more time to get settled in America and even learn to strengthen her skills when she is healthy. I am a big Gulia fan when she wrested with NJPW and I hope she succeeds in WWE.
