WWE.com

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:

  • Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet tweeted that a source told him Ronda Rousey interfering in the TLC main event was not intended as a heel turn.
  • On a pre-TLC edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer says he’s heard Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair will happen at Royal Rumble.
  • There’s speculation backstage Vince McMahon could announce another Draft during his appearance on Raw tonight, although PW Insider says no one has heard that’s definitely the plan.
  • Insider also says the decision to have Vince on Raw came late last week, and could have caused them to decide to bring Kurt Angle back at TLC instead of on Monday’s show.
  • Bandido has signed an exclusive deal with Ring of Honor, according to a report from lucha blog which has since been supported by other sites.
