Rumor Roundup (Jan. 30, 2018): Rousey partner, WWE women, Mysterio deal, Jericho return, 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:

  • If The Rock can’t do WrestleMania 34, PW Insider speculates WWE may use Braun Strowman as Ronda Rousey’s tag partner against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
  • According to Wrestling Observer, WWE plans to “heavily push women” now that Rousey is on board because she’s “the company’s biggest mainstream star”.
  • PW Insider claims the main issue in getting Rey Mysterio back in WWE is that the company wants him on a full-time schedule and he only wants to commit to a part-time one.
  • That site also reiterated previous reports of Ivory as a WWE Hall of Fame inductee this year, and add that Mark Henry is also likely for the 2018 class.
  • An announcement about changing dates for one-man shows Chris Jericho had planned in the UK, including a deleted tweet saying they were moved due to “scheduling conflicts with WWE shows”, have people saying he’ll be back with WWE for a run this Summer.
