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:

  • AJ Styles vs. John Cena could be the plan for the WWE championship match at Royal Rumble.
  • The long term plan for Sasha Banks is to turn heel, according to the Observer, though it's likely coming after her program with Nia Jax.
  • The WWE UK tournament is only for the UK and apparently WWE doesn't think there's much expansion opportunity in Europe right now.
  • The Observer notes Trent Seven, Pete Dunne, and Tyler Bate are names listed as those with potential as top stars for the tournament.
  • The latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes Drew Galloway's contract expires in February and he turned down an offer to stay months ago.
