Rumor Roundup (Dec. 18, 2017): Hall of Fame, Vince’s new football league, WWE additions, 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 Goldberg, the rumored names for the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame class reported by Twitter user Brad Shepard (who first mentioned the XFL return story) included Bam Bam Bigelow, The Dudleyz, Ivory and Kid Rock.
  • Vince McMahon and his non-WWE business ventures have been trademarking terms like “URFL”, "United Football League", "UFL" and "For the Love of Football", furthering speculation he’s thinking about an XFL revival or starting another NFL competitor.
  • Mojo Rawley’s online promos for his match with Zack Ryder on Sunday got a ton of praise from all over the place, and could have him in-line for a mid-card push.
  • Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet tweeted that WWE was originally going to feature only women on their debut Facebook Watch show, but scrapped that in favor of Mixed Match Challenge.
  • A moment where War Machine bowed to the crowd after their match at this weekend’s ROH TV taping has restarted talk Hanson and Rowe could be WWE bound.
