Rumor Roundup (Jan. 23, 2016): Royal Rumble winner, Cesaro return, Lana absence, more!

New, comments

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:

  • Despite the odds, as of now Triple H isn't likely to win the Royal Rumble. It would be a surprise if it was anyone other than Roman Reigns.
  • It's at least possible that Cesaro is ready to return to WWE by WrestleMania but it's expected he'll be back by April at the latest.
  • The belief is Lana has been kept off television because of her leaking news of her engagement to Rusev to TMZ and it getting out while they were still feuding.
  • Christian is apparently still under contract with WWE but he's done wrestling and will only be used for occasional appearances, as well as starring in a WWE Network show with Edge.
  • Apparently ZZ is still dealing with an injury he suffered in training and we may not be seeing him anytime soon.
