Rumor Roundup (Sept. 30, 2016): Roman Reigns plans, No Mercy matches, Royal Rumble 2017 location, 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:

  • The Observer notes that WWE STILL has the idea of building support for Roman Reigns -- this time through feuding with Rusev over the US title -- leading to the coronation of him as the top star in the company.
  • WWE will likely add a Nikki Bella vs. Carmella No Disqualification match and a Baron Corbin vs. Jack Swagger match to the upcoming No Mercy event.
  • PW Insider is saying San Antonio, Texas has been talked about for the location for the Royal Rumble next year. The Observer, meanwhile, is still saying it will take place in Los Angeles and the announcement will be made during Raw next week.
  • According to the Observer, everyone involved at TNA wants Dixie Carter out and she has made a mess of the sale.
  • The new word is that WWE is once again no longer in the picture to buy TNA but if everything else falls through, like what happened with WCW, they could get it with the low offer they've put in.
