Below, talkSPORT give you the latest gossip and rumours from the wrestling world.

WWE leaving PG era behind

WWE commentator Corey Graves swore on live TV after Braun Strowman smashed Bobby Lashley through a titantron on Raw.

Graves reacted to the shocking spot by saying ‘Holy s***’.

And 24 hours later on SmackDown Live, WWE champion Kofi Kingston put his middle finger up to his Extreme Rules opponent Samoa Joe.

When asked on Twitter if Kingston’s actions were a sign of WWE moving away from the PG era, the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer replied ‘yes’.

Ronda Rousey teases WWE return

Rousey has not been seen on WWE TV since losing the Raw Women’s Championship to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35 in April.

The Baddest Woman on the Planet confirmed she had left the company indefinitely to start a family with husband Travis Browne.

However, in a light-hearted video uploaded on to her YouTube channel titled ‘Ronda misses it’, Rousey is seen pinning Browne while he sleeps and jumping off a ladder.

It is clear that WWE is still on the former UFC star’s mind.

Liv Morgan ‘plotting’ SmackDown Live debut

Morgan was drafted to SmackDown Live during the Superstar Shake-up in April, which broke her up from the Riott Squad. 

And three months later, the 25-year-old is yet to make an appearance on the blue brand.

On Wednesday, Morgan tweeted ‘It’s okay it’s okay. I’m plotting’ in reply to a fan who pleaded with her to come back to WWE TV.
