Rumor Roundup (Dec. 22, 2015): Stephanie McMahon heel status, WWE trying to sign Lucha Underground stars, 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:

  • Though she was originally among the nominees for the Hero of the Year Slammy and a choice on the WWE App, Stephanie McMahon was pulled from the list when it was read on Raw - presumably to keep heat on her as Roman Reigns' adversary.
  • AAA & Lucha Underground's Angelico and Jack Evans claim to have been offered WWE deals at least twice, but say they are sticking with LU for as long as it exists.
  • Cameron was on social media this weekend talking about the training she's doing to improve her wrestling, but also indicating that WWE doesn't have plans to put her back on television right now.
  • In addition to Michael Bennett and Maria Kanellis departures, Ring of Honor is also getting nowhere in contract negotiations with Jay Lethal (whose deal is up next year) and Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish of reDRagon (done at the end of 2015).
  • As revealed earlier, TNA has moved their "Best of" episodes to POP TV to build interest in the debut of new shows next year. They're also putting full episodes of Impact that aired on Destination America up on their YouTube channel to get fans excited about the conclusion of the World Title Series.
