Rumor Roundup (Jan. 16, 2017): Mania plans, Shane, Goldberg/Lesnar, 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:

  • WWE officials are considering AJ Styles vs. Shane McMahon for WrestleMania 33.
  • Even if that’s not the final call, Shane is definitely slotted for a match on the card against a SmackDown star.
  • Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg is set to close the show in Orlando.
  • Not terribly surprising, but Vince McMahon told his team that while The Rock will be in Camping World Stadium on April 2, he won’t be wrestling.
  • Keith Lee signed with WWN, which is noteworthy because PWInsider says he chose Evolve over an offer to stay with Ring of Honor, where his tag partner Shane Taylor recently re-upped.

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.
