Rumor Roundup (Jan. 9, 2017): Royal Rumble entrants, Baron Corbin push, Batista, more!

Royal Rumble

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:

  • There are expected to be multiple additions to the Royal Rumble match made official on Raw tonight.
  • Baron Corbin is in line for a big push here sooner rather than later.
  • Batista had an appearance at Wizard World in New Orleans booked through WWE, according to PW Insider, but it is not expected to lead to a return anytime soon.
  • John Cena's Instagram post on Kenny Omega wasn't indicative of anything and it's not expected he'll be coming to WWE.
  • WWE has gone back to giving new names to wrestlers, even if said wrestlers are well known on the independent scene under a different name.

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.
