Rumor Roundup (Nov. 18, 2015): Charlotte-Paige angle, Lana Twitter issue, Alberto Del Rio, 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 With Spandex, it was Charlotte who initially suggested that they use her brother's death in the angle with Paige on Raw this week. PW Insider, however, is disputing that, saying WWE pitched her on it and she, obviously, agreed to it. They're also reporting Ric Flair wasn't approached with it before they did it. (An update with much more on this can be found here.)
  • The Observer is reporting that the back-and-forth between Lana and Paige on Twitter was not an angle and was a "discussion point within WWE" after it happened.
  • It's expected that WWE will pick up the Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger program after Survivor Series to bridge the gap until John Cena returns.
  • Billy Gunn is already taking dates on the independent scene doing seminars and working other dates.
  • As had been reported by the Observer, Destination America is getting out of the wrestling business altogether with both Ring of Honor and TNA leaving the station soon.

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.
