Royal Rumble WWE

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. We track rumor accuracy in a weekly feature called Rumor Look Back you can find here. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • WrestleVotes notes that as of now we’ll have a repeat winner for the Royal Rumble next year.
  • Super Show-Down is expected to be where WWE will shoot an angle leading to a Ronda Rousey vs. Nikki Bella title match at Evolution.
  • WWE is expected to sign Punishment Martinez now that he’s done with Ring of Honor but there are more signings expected in the coming months.
  • PW Insider says Tenille Dashwood’s injury is not an angle and she’s looking at surgery and being out for a while.
