With Dean Ambrose having his final match in WWE for a while, Sasha Banks taking some time out and CM Punk seemingly returning to the business, it’s safe to say a lot is going on in the wrestling industry right now.
Let’s take a look at the rumours currently floating around:
More on CM Punk return
As it was noted yesterday, CM Punk made a return to wrestling at an indy show under a mask.
Wrestling Inc say that Punk was actually meant to unmask but they changed the plans at the last minute. Furthermore, Sean Ross Sapp suggests that Punk has done this a few times over the past few years without revealing his identity.
Backlash cancelled in June
WWE cancelled their event in Saudi Arabia in May earlier this month and now they have cancelled the June pay-per-view, Backlash.
Speculation suggests that they have done this to accommodate a new Saudi Arabia show.
