Rumor Roundup (Jan. 5, 2017): TNA signings & returns, Jericho exit, reason for Alicia Fox angle, 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:

  • Negotiations between Impact and Alberto Del Rio never really stopped and he may still be joining TNA.
  • In addition to ongoing talks with Jeff Jarrett, TNA’s new ownership is also said to be interested in bringing Dutch Mantell (aka Zeb Colter) onto their management team - presumably for booking/creative.
  • Both Davey Richards & Angelina Love could be back on Impact tonight, or at some point during this set of tapings.
  • Fozzy started work on their next album yesterday, the latest sign Chris Jericho’s time with WWE is winding down soon.
  • Here’s a dumb one - a reason for the Cedric Alexander/Alicia Fox angle on Raw and 205 Live is because Vince McMahon thinks it’s funny how Noam Dar’s Scottish accent makes “Fox” sound like a curse word that also starts with “F”.

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.
