Wrestling Rumor Roundup: Details on Sister Abigail’s debut and The Shield’s reunion

It seems all the rumors have hit at once this week! This essential roundup contains details on The Shield reunion, Sister Abigail's debut, and more!

The Shield to reunite at next week’s RAW

So let us get the biggest rumor down first! Last week on RAW, the WWE creative team teased a Shield reunion when Roman Reigns was shown in the locker room flanked by his former justice dealing teammates, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. 

This sent the wrestling community into a meltdown, and some people have assumed that next week on Raw, they will get back together and re-debut in the very same stadium they debuted in (Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis). 

PWInsider.com released an interview with Seth Rollins back in August, at the launch party of the WWE 2K18 video game. Seth said (on the topic of a Shield reunion) “Whether it helps Roman or not, it helps me. I truly enjoy being out there with those guys. We shared some great times in the ring. If it happens, it happens. If not, we’ll all be fine.”

So that shows that Seth is up for it – what about you guys? Are you welcoming to the idea of The Shield reuniting?

Sister Abigail debut details

Since last Monday’s mystical Bray Wyatt promo on Finn Balor, the internet community has exploded with rumors regarding Sister Abigail’s debut. A few sources have released different information about this, so this round-up will go through the most common and reliable ones.

Firstly, prowrestlingsheet.com is certain that sources with “direct knowledge” have told them that the current plan for Bray Wyatt is for him to wrestle at the upcoming TLC pay-per-view under the persona of “Sister Abigail” – similar to how Finn Balor “becomes” the Demon, Bray Wyatt will “become” Sister Abigail. If you saw his last RAW promo, he transformed into another version of Bray that we haven’t seen before, and a female was laughing alongside him. However, they are unsure if the match will have any additional stipulations or gimmicks.

The second rumor is that Sage Beckett, the NXT talent, will debut as Sister Abigail. People believe this to be the case because she tweeted a cryptical photo – the silhouette of a female on fire, with “They’re all lies darling” written over the top. Twitter users have drawn the connection between the female figure on fire, and Randy Orton “burning” Sister Abigail when he set alight to that garden shed during their terrible feud.

What do you believe to be the case? Is Sage having harmless fun, or could there be something there? Or do you believe Bray Wyatt will vicariously become Sister Abigail?

Storyline Rumour: John Cena and Lesnar

The two part-timers, Cena and Lesnar, are both off simultaneously at the moment. John Cena has gone back to Hollywood after his defeat at No Mercy 2017, and Lesnar is off probably hunting bears with a pen knife. But what can we expect when the two giants get back?

Well, Wrestlinginc.com supposedly has the answer. Both will likely wrestle at Survivor Series 2017, and we know that Lesnar is already scheduled for the Monday Night Raw before Survivor Series on November 13th - but he has also been added to the post TLC 2017 episode of RAW. Cena is already being advertised for the same PPV, where he is supposedly facing Bray Wyatt.

Gail Kim to retire at Bound for Glory 2017

With less than two months to go before "Bound for Glory 2017", not much is known about the final card. However, we do know that Gail Kim, a TNA mainstay - is going to wrap up her Hall of Fame career. In a new video released on the GFW YouTube channel, Gail Kim mentioned that she might be ready to leave the ring for the final time at Bound For Glory 2017. The pay-per-view will be held in Canada, Kim's home country. She also mentioned that she wants to win the Knockouts Title one final time before she retires.

Impact Wrestling to move out of the historic Impact Zone

For over a decade, Orlando has been known as the "Impact Zone". This is where TNA Impact has primarily filmed all of their television tapings, however - this has caused the same issue time and time again. As we're aware, the Impact Zone is actually a sound stage in Universal Studios. As a result, a lot of the crowd that attend the tapings are tourists that get given free tickets by representatives of TNA within the theme park (I should know, I was given a free ticket a few years ago whilst wandering around Universal Studios). As a result, a large majority of the crowd are just tourists who do not follow Impact, therefore have no idea what the show is about. The result is a quiet, unresponsive crowd.

However, PWInsider (by way of 411mania.com) report that Impact are now focusing on taping their TV shows in new areas - not just in Orlando. It states that the company may eventually return to Universal Studios in the future. 

There are already confirmed a TV taping happening in Ottawa, Canada - which is where they will record the post Bound For Glory episodes, but there is news on them potentially taping their episodes in New York City, Chicago and Toronto.
