    The Grapevine (9/21/20): Melina Denies Rumors, Notes on Reigns/Heyman, Bianca Belair

    Melina Perez

    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    Melina denies WWE rumors

    Former WWE superstar Melina has publicly denied rumors of signing with WWE. PWInsider broke the news the other day, claiming that she was set to return to RAW or SmackDown this week. Melina last appeared for NWA, which is currently on hiatus.

    We say: While we're likely to take this denial on its face, we'd keep an eye out for her anyway. Denials like this after rumors of re-signing are a dime a dozen—just see what happened to her ex, John Morrison.

    A note on Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman

    The dynamic between Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman is apparently deliberately different from the one between Heyman and Brock Lesnar. In storyline, Reigns is not Heyman's friend, and is responsible for giving him a job after Lesnar did not renew his WWE contract. Meanwhile, the new moniker "Special Counsel to the Tribal Chief" is a reference to High Chief Peter Maivia. (Source: WON)

    We say: This different Paul Heyman works really well, as it's done enough to make the partnership feel different and not a ripoff of Heyman and Lesnar. We're all for it.

    A note on Bianca Belair

    Bianca Belair was reportedly in line for a push on RAW, but Vince McMahon apparently forgot about her being on the roster. Despite that, McMahon is said to be high on her and Peyton Royce as potential singles stars. (Source: WON)

    We say: This is the point where we say "how could you forget about someone you're supposed to be high on?" but we also remember that there are so many people on all the rosters. Tough luck.

    Let us know what you think of today's news in the comments!
