Welcome to another edition of the daily WWE Rumor Roundup, where we bring you the biggest rumors and updates from the world of sports entertainment. In today's edition, we will take a look at rumors related to top names like Ronda Rousey, Tyson Fury, and Seth Rollins.

Rousey lost her SmackDown Women's Championship to Liv Morgan at the Money in the Bank premium live event last weekend. After The Baddest Woman On The Planet beat Natalya, Morgan came out and cashed in her MITB contract. Though Rousey lost the gold, she still hugged the new champion after the match.

While this outcome indicated that they might be cordial with each other, rumors suggest that WWE is planning on having a match between Rousey and Morgan at SummerSlam.

#3 Ronda Rousey allegedly wanted to lose the SmackDown Women's Championship

As per Ronda Rousey's personal photographer, she never wanted or asked to be the Women's Champion. She also "demanded" that the most passionate superstar on the roster defeat her to take the championship. A post on her photographer's social media stated:

"Respect to Ronda Rousey, who never wanted or asked to be champion... And demanded that the most passionate pro wrestler be awarded the most prestigious title in our industry... #respect."

The Baddest Woman on the Planet lost the title to Morgan but was still protected as she was selling a leg injury. Given the rumors about Rousey facing Morgan at SummerSlam, there is a feeling that the former WrestleMania main-eventer may turn heel during this potential feud.

#2 Tyson Fury in talks to return to WWE

Givemesport has reported that Tyson Fury might be headed back to Vince McMahon's company. The legendary boxer made his in-ring debut in 2019 when he competed in a match against Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel. He also joined forces with Strowman to beat up the B-Team on SmackDown a few weeks later.

''GiveMeSport has been told that Tyson Fury is in talks with WWE over a potential return this summer by sources close to the boxer. Nothing concrete yet, but discussions for September's Clash at the Castle UK PPV", tweeted Louis Dangoor''

Drew McIntyre and Tyson Fury have been trading shots on social media for quite a while now. The Scottish Warrior has been vocal about how much he wants to face Fury at WWE's Clash at the Castle. Fury himself has stated that he wants to return and "knock" McIntyre for his comments.

#1 Logan Paul calling his own shots in the company

KSI’s reaction to Logan Paul signing to WWE!

YouTube sensation Logan Paul recently signed a deal with WWE. He's seemingly set to face his former tag team partner The Miz at SummerSlam this year. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported that Paul specifically asked to be a babyface upon his return. He's apparently the one calling the shots during his dealings with WWE.

The boxing star had his first wrestling match at WrestleMania 38 when he teamed up with The Miz to take on Rey and Dominik Mysterio. After the duo won the match, The A-Lister turned on Paul and hit him with the Skull Crushing Finale. Moving forward, The Miz could be the perfect first feud for Paul's singles run in the company.

Vince McMahon loves a current star. Kurt Angle gave us all the details here.
