Rumor Roundup (Dec. 8, 2016): Samoa Joe call-up, Baron Corbin push, Lana wrestling, 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:

  • There’s word going around that Samoa Joe is main roster bound, with Royal Rumble being the latest he’ll show up.
  • Expect Baron Corbin to move into SmackDown’s title picture in the first half of 2017.
  • Lana is scheduled to wrestle in tag matches at a couple NXT Florida house shows this weekend, reportedly to work on fundamentals for occassional spots and bumps - not because she’s going to pushed as a wrestler.
  • Pro Wrestling Sheet reports the Total Divas graphic which left Naomi out and caused a stir online was an oversight by the WWE graphics department which was fixed by the time SmackDown’s replay was posted to Hulu.
  • Paige posted a cryptic Tweet which read “When you do nothing wrong but things still bite you in ass for no reason. Always fun haha.” yesterday, leading to more speculation she’s in trouble with WWE again just as her latest suspension is almost up. Then she deleted it.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you'd like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
