Rumor Roundup (Dec. 27, 2017): Royal Rumble favorites, Dean Ambrose injury, Matt Hardy, 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:

  • Betting sites are currently favoring John Cena and Ronda Rousey to win the two Royal Rumble matches next month.
  • While the rumor is WWE is likely exaggerating how long Dean Ambrose will be out injured, there are various timelines floating around on a possible return date, from 2-to-3 months to 6-to-7. The consensus seems to be that it won't be as many as 9 as WWE claimed.
  • WWE had Matt Hardy use the old "Broken" piano theme at the MSG show last night, leading to obvious speculation he may get to use it on TV soon.
  • Jonathan Coachman recently mentioned he believes Vince McMahon may attempt to buy the Carolina Panthers.
  • Dave Meltzer noted recently that Mark Cuban wants to push the New Japan TV show more.
