Rumor Roundup (Jan. 27, 2015): WWE Network cancellations, Royal Rumble reaction, Daniel Bryan, 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:

  • According to the PW Insider, despite the #CancelWWENetwork hashtag trending all throughout the night and many fans attempting to cancel their Network subscriptions, the number apparently wasn't high enough for the company to be all that concerned about.
  • WWE is also apparently blaming Philadelphia for the reaction at the Royal Rumble, which is to say they're trying to pass it off as though the city they were in was the biggest problem, not the booking or the players involved.
  • Daniel Bryan, as of right now, apparently does not have a set match at WrestleMania 31. So take that as you will.
  • Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt looks more and more likely but if they don't do that, speculation is running rampant that it will be Wyatt vs. Bryan.
  • According to PW Torch, WWE hired EVP of Content Lisa Fox Lee to act as a sort of tiebreaker creatively between Vince McMahon and Triple H.
