Rumor Roundup (Feb. 5, 2015): Original Fast Lane plans, WrestleMania 31 main event, Royal Rumble, 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 Observer, original plans for Fast Lane were for Roman Reigns to go over a top heel, likely Big Show in the rumored Last Man Standing match, while Daniel Bryan was going to be used to put Bray Wyatt over. That would have led to Wyatt vs. Undertaker and Bryan would have moved on to Sheamus, although that now looks to be Dolph Ziggler.
  • For what it's worth, everything still points to Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar in a singles match in the main event of WrestleMania 31 with Reigns winning the title.
  • If you're wondering who to blame the Royal Rumble match booking for, it's been said that Jamie Noble, Joey Mercury, Pat Patterson, and Michael Hayes were all involved in putting it together and laying it out.
  • The Brass Ring Club may actually end up being the tag team name Cesaro & Tyson Kidd end up with. According to the Observer, they came up with it on their own after WWE asked them to think of something.
  • WWE and Tapout have apparently finally agreed on a deal and will announce it soon.
