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:

  • There’s speculation that Ronda Rousey and Nia Jax will be missing house shows this weekend to work on their match at TLC.

  • On Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez mentioned there is a belief within WWE that they are going to turn things around in January. There’s apparently some big idea.
