Roman Reigns

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:

  • There is a graphic making the rounds, for whatever that's worth, that is advertising John Cena vs. AJ Styles in a 2-out-of-3 Falls match at Elimination Chamber in February.
  • According to the Observer, WWE still hasn't decided on what Roman Reigns will be doing at WrestleMania 33 but it's entirely possible he'll be Universal champion and that he could be winning it at Royal Rumble next month.
  • Dave Meltzer also noted there has been a "big surprise" idea floated for Reigns but it probably won't happen.
  • PW Insider notes there's been talk that an official announcement could be coming soon from Anthem Sports and Entertainment on purchasing TNA. Furthermore, Dixie Carter will be completely out of power.
  • Also noted on TNA from PW Insider: Impact this week will feature footage from the Hardy compound with "something unique" that we've never seen before in pro wrestling.
