Rumor Roundup (Jan. 21, 2015): Brock Lesnar UFC return, Royal Rumble surprises, NXT, more!

Speculating on the rumors surrounding pro wrestling is a favored pastime of many fans, perhaps second only to actually watching the matches. In this daily column, we take a look at the latest rumors being churned out by the pro wrestling rumor mill.

Important reminder: Rumors are just that -- rumors. None of this has been confirmed as legitimate news or fact, it's just circulating around the pro wrestling rumor mill. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • Dave Meltzer noted recently that people within UFC are of the belief that Brock Lesnar is definitely coming back. What's more, his first match up could be a third fight against Frank Mir.
  • There's been more speculation that both Randy Orton and Sheamus will return to WWE as surprise entrants in the Royal Rumble.
  • Speaking of surprise entrants in the Rumble match, add Rob Van Dam, Bo Dallas, and the Dudley Boyz as names making the rounds.
  • Also, according to PW Insider, there was talk at Raw this week of using a couple NXT stars in the Royal Rumble. No word on who those two would be.
  • There's been a rumor going around that WWE programming will be going back to a TV-14 rating in the near future but that does not appear to be the case.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
