Rumor Roundup (Nov. 22, 2017): Finn Balor plans, Brock Lesnar match, Survivor Series injury sell, 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:

  • According to the Observer, Vince McMahon has apparently cooled on the idea of pushing Finn Balor because he's not over enough.
  • That includes taking away a planned title shot against Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble next year. No word on a replacement opponent for Brock just yet.
  • Per the Observer, Lesnar sold his knee even backstage after Survivor Series because he wanted people to think he's hurt, even though he's not.
  • Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting WWE is in talks to do a Facebook Live show starting in January. The show would apparently go on after SmackDown Live and could feature a mixed tag team concept.
  • The WWE UK show is expected to start filming soon.
