Is The Moon Really Hollow?

Is the moon really hollow or is it filled with fluids (like water)? All the investigations related to the moon are showing us that the moon is not really full as we thought before but instead it's hollow, which means that there's nothing inside. But I don't know about that, I thought that the moon was like earth and it had a core inside.
So what do scientists say about this? Is the moon hollow or is is composed of some element?

Lets just make clear that we have been to the moon and astronauts have made investigations about the moon.
There's this theory that the moon is hollow but it discarded already.
The rumor of the moon being hollow started during the Apollo missions, it was recorded by NASA that when the lunar landers hit the surface a weird sound was heard and that made them think that it was hollow.
If the moon were hollow, it's clear that it wouldn't have the gravitational pull that it does have on Earth.
The moon, just like all the other planets and moons, is a massive solid ball of rock.
