Rumor Roundup (Dec. 14, 2017): Reigns/Cena, Mixed Match Challenge, Raw 25, 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:

  • There’s talk that John Cena’s appearance on the Christmas episode of Raw could be to answer Roman Reigns’ Intercontinental title open challenge, per Wrestling Inc, giving us a No Mercy rematch.
  • Vince McMahon is “pulling out all the stops” on Mixed Match Challenge, says Pro Wrestling Sheet, as succeeding on Facebook would result in more bidders when their contract with NBC expires in 2019.
  • Nia Jax and Enzo Amore will likely be paired to further their 205 Live angle, and real life married couples like Rusev and Lana, and Naomi and Jimmy Uso, could be teamed.
  • Scott Dawson is still expected to be cleared this month, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet.
  • Jerry Lawler says it’s almost a lock he and Jim Ross will call some action during Raw’s 25th anniversary show on Jan. 22.
