Rumor Roundup (Oct. 20, 2016): Rollins vs. Triple H, Goldberg’s future, women’s tournament, Paige on Total Divas

WWE Network

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:

  • With pressure to fill the Alamodome, WWE is considering speeding up the Seth Rollins vs. Triple H feud in order for them to have a match at Royal Rumble. They’re still penciled in for WrestleMania, so a January bout would set up a rematch.

  • Based on the response to and ratings for Raw, there’s already talk of keeping Goldberg around for at least one more match - possibly at WrestleMania.

  • Triple H & Stephanie McMahon are trying to film a women’s tournament show for WWE Network, tentatively titled the World Women’s Classic, in January or February 2017.

  • The romance between Paige and Alberto Del Rio is set to be the main storyline for the first several episodes of Total Divas season six, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet.

  • Those episodes were edited before the drama between Paige and WWE really flared up and Del Rio left the company. It’s not clear how later episodes will present the couple - if at all.
