Rumor Roundup (Jan. 3, 2018): Daniel Bryan wrestling, Chris Jericho, Royal Rumble, 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:

  • Although there are rumors of Daniel Bryan wrestling Shane McMahon at WrestleMania 34, Dave Meltzer recently noted the former still isn't cleared and it's not happening.
  • Meltzer also noted on Twitter that Chris Jericho appearing in the Royal Rumble is a possibility.
  • Per PW Insider, NXT wrestlers were at SmackDown Live backstage but likely only because it was in Orlando.
  • Rockstar Spud was apparently also backstage at WWE TV this week and he's just waiting to debut at any time.
  • Jerry Lawler recently mentioned on his podcast that he believes he will reunite with Jim Ross for the upcoming WWE Raw 25 show on Jan. 22.
