Rumor Roundup (Jan. 17, 2018): Roman Reigns title run, US Title Tournament, 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:

  • The early expectation is Roman Reigns will lose the Intercontinental championship back to The Miz on Raw 25 next week.
  • Not surprisingly, the word on Twitter is the decision to move the U.S. Title Tournament Final up to this week’s SmackDown was made at the very last minute.
  • Hulk Hogan told a fan on Twitter that he won’t be at Raw 25 and PW Insider notes there hasn’t been any talk of him being there.
  • To that end, they’re also saying Jeff Hardy is scheduled to be there for the show but as of now names like Bret Hart, Edge, Batista, and Rey Mysterio will not be, at least as of now.
  • Serena Deeb was at the WWE Performance Center this week, per PW Insider, and it’s looking like she’ll be back in WWE shortly.
