Rumor Roundup (Jan. 9, 2018): Cena post-Rumble plans, Undertaker, Jericho/New Japan, 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:

  • Most of John Cena’s post-Royal Rumble bookings are on Raw and involve working against Samoa Joe in tag and multi-man matches.
  • Still, a program with Joe is seen as filler to get to bigger plans for him at WrestleMania. Observer Radio speculated his match against Undertaker there could be set up at Raw 25 in two weeks.
  • It’s believed the Chris Jericho vs. Tetsuya Naito match set-up at New Year’s Dash!! will take place when New Japan returns to California on Mar. 25 for Strong Style Evolved.
  • Serena Deeb was seen in Pittsburgh Monday, according to PW Insider. WWE does pre-signing medical testing there, and this coincides with sources telling the site the company was interested in bringing her back after the Mae Young Classic.
  • Former adult film star/current sports talk personality/Eva Marie debate opponent Mia Khalifa is expected to work an angle at the indie wrestling show she was invited to by Thunder Rosa (aka Lucha Underground’s Kobra Moon).
