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 Observer notes the Raw and SmackDown women’s champions may not be wrestling at Royal Rumble due to every woman needing to be in the Rumble match. The obvious speculation is they will sit ringside for the match.
  • There’s talk that the WWE title match at Royal Rumble will be the start of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn turning on each other.
  • Bobby Roode vs. Jinder Mahal is the expected final for the US title tournament, with the former the likely winner.
