Rumor Roundup (Dec. 12, 2017): Rousey/Asuka, Neville return, Sheamus injury, Sister Abigail, 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:

  • In addition to news that Ronda Rousey’s signing is imminent, some Dave Meltzer speculation about Asuka adding an armbar submission has led to a lot of talk there are plans for the two to face each other in WWE.
  • Previously reported talks between Neville and WWE stopped ‘abruptly’, per PW Insider. There had been discussions about him joining the SmackDown roster while WWE was in Europe last month.
  • According to Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE is trying to protect Sheamus due to his neck injury. He’s said to be taking fewer bumps on house shows, and working more multi-man matches.
  • Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks’ proposed 10K seat show is expected to happen in either Chicago or the Los Angeles area.
  • Former WWE writer Tom Cassiello said on The Agenda Podcast there was a pitch to debut former Divas champ Kaitlyn as a member of The Wyatt Family, possibly Sister Abigail, when the group was called up from NXT in 2013.
