Rumor Roundup (Jan. 20, 2018): Daniel Bryan, Royal Rumble, Samoa Joe injury, James Storm, 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:

  • From all accounts, despite betting odds, there are no plans for Daniel Bryan to be in the Royal Rumble match and he still isn’t cleared by WWE to wrestle.
  • According to the Observer, Samoa Joe’s injury is worse than originally believed and he could be out well into March.
  • James Storm has apparently been saying he wants to get a deal done with WWE.
  • The Observer speculates that what Austin Aries is doing in Impact Wrestling now is the spot Rey Mysterio would have had if they had come to a deal.
  • Impact is interested in Jeff Cobb, per the Observer.
