Rumor Roundup (Jan. 7, 2015): Grumpy Vince McMahon, Triple H backstage Raw meeting, Royal Rumble surprise, 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:

  • Back to the "Vince McMahon is grumpy" well. Apparently, according to Daily Wrestling News, the WWE Chairman is upset that NXT is perceived to be better than WWE and he feels that some of the NXT stars are overrated. Take that for what you will.
  • Meanwhile, PW Insider is reporting that Raw this week was rewritten late in the day and a lot of folks were unhappy about the show backstage.
  • What's more, MetsFan4Ever was back on Reddit claiming Triple H held a talent meeting backstage at Raw saying that a decision on who will win the Royal Rumble and main event WrestleMania 31 has yet to be made and wrestlers should step it up in the weeks to come.
  • It's looking likely that Sheamus will be a surprise entrant in the Royal Rumble match.
  • There are some reports going around that Christian told fans at a charity event recently that he is not retired as mentioned by Jerry Lawler on Raw not long ago.
