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:

  • A Twitter user named Brad Shepard got a rumor started last night that Vince McMahon is bringing the XFL back and could announce it on Jan. 25, 2018.
  • The same person is saying Goldberg will headline the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame.
  • Apparently it was the network's idea to run NXT on Wednesday night on USA this week and WWE jumped on it.
  • Officials at Impact Wrestling were upset with Rockstar Spud for signing with WWE, per the Observer, apparently because the company spent a lot of money to get his visa issues resolved and then he quit and went to the competition.
  • The Observer notes the plan is for Lucha Underground to film its next season starting on Feb. 16, 2018.
