What to believe, and what not to believe. There are many rumors out there that we simply wish were true, especially with the state of wrestling today. No matter how bizarre a rumor tends to be, there is always that little ray of hope that it actually may happen. This is in large part because of WWE’s CEO Vince McMahon, who uses a 'never say never' kind of motto when dealing with his product. So many wrestlers have had the door slammed shut, only to see it magically reopen. Why? Because according to Vince, it's best for business.
If so, will wrestlers like Chyna ever return? Or what about the Hardy brothers? We will take a look at some other names in this article that are rumored for a comeback. Let’s now begin to take a look at some of these rumors; here are 10 wrestling rumors we wish were true. Enjoy!
10 No More 3 Hour RAW
9 Shawn Michaels Performs At WrestleMania
8 The Hardcore and Cruiserweight Division Return
This is something I’m sure a lot of us wrestling fans wish was true. Episodes of RAW lack depth, making various storylines and matches drag on way too long during WWE programming. Adding these divisions would definitely help the show flow much better, especially with a 3 hour RAW. It would make way for many more storylines and also help the careers of countless superstars who just seem to be wasting away their careers because of bad writing. The Cruiserweight Division was a strong backbone for WCW, and if done properly, the WWE can really benefit using a new wave of talent in this division. Rumors are already surfacing that Triple H plans to build a Cruiserweight Division in NXT.
7 Jim Ross Returns To Commentary
6 NXT Gets Air Time During RAW
5 Vince McMahon Stays Full Time
4 ESPN Picks Up RAW
3 Steve Austin Returns For One More Match
There isn’t a wrestler in the world that wrestling fans want to see comeback for one more match more than the Texas Rattlesnake himself, Stone Cold Steve Austin. With WrestleMania in Texas this year, rumors continue to swirl about a possible return to the ring by the Texas Rattlesnake. Just imagine a packed AT&T Stadium watching Steve Austin make his long anticipated in ring return against the conqueror; the mayor of suplex city, Brockkkkk Lesnarrrrrr!
2 The Monday Night Wars Return
With so much power within the WWE today, many hope that one day a company will once again rival the WWE. A lack of competition has caused the WWE’s product to stagnate quite a bit in the last couple of years. Having some good competition would truly give the WWE a jolt it desperately needs.
1 PG Era Comes To An End, Attitude Era Returns
At the end of the day, many limitations to the program are caused by the PG rating, and many call this the reason for wrestling’s demise in the past couple of years. The edgy, ‘in your face’ raw material that hardcore wrestling fans fell in love with once upon a time is basically gone. Today, wrestling is much more scripted, and promos are nowhere near the entertainment value that they used to be, and this is in large part because of the restrictions caused by the infamous PG rating. Wrestling had an edge in the 90s and more importantly, you never knew what to expect. There was simply something so much more real to the product than the dry one today. It seems that all the new PG rating has done for the product is cause barriers and limitations. This has played a major role in many aspects of the company state today. Wrestling fans still hold on to the product today in hopes that WWE will somehow leave the PG era behind and welcome in a whole new era of wrestling. For now, this just another rumor we wish was true.
