Rumor Roundup (Jan. 2, 2017): Undertaker, Royal Rumble, Batista return, Cena & Reigns, 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:

  • Undertaker is likely going to announce he will enter the Royal Rumble match when he appears on Raw next week.
  • Shawn Michaels is expected to have a big presence on the show but won't be going against his retirement stipulation.
  • The latest word is Batista is likely done with WWE and there are no plans for a retirement match like he talked about wanting at one point.
  • The recent sniping back-and-forth on Twitter between John Cena and Roman Reigns is not being done to build to a match.
  • PW Insider noted recently that WWE wasn't happy about Renee Young and Dean Ambrose's relationship going public when it did. That hasn't stopped them from using it on television, obviously.

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.
