Rumor Roundup (Jan. 4, 2017): Bayley plans, Renee Young wrestling, Dolph Ziggler heel turn, 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:

  • Bayley is getting the Daniel Bryan push as the ultimate underdog and she will likely win the women's title at WrestleMania 33.
  • Although television is building to it, there are no current plans for Renee Young to wrestle. That could always change, of course.
  • Dolph Ziggler superkicking Kalisto was a heel turn and he'll be playing a bad guy going forward with the idea it will freshen up his character after he missed out on winning so many big matches.
  • Diamond Dallas Page will be one of the members of the 2017 WWE Hall of Fame, according to PW Insider.
  • PW Insider notes that Deonna Purrazzo has been playing La Luchadora but she doesn't have a contract with WWE right now.
