Rumor Roundup (Dec. 20, 2018): Bray Wyatt & Shinsuke Nakamura’s WWE futures, Paige decision, 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. 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:

  • Sources told PW Insider that Bray Wyatt will work the Raw live events after Christmas, including Madison Square Garden, so his latest round of Twitter teases doesn’t mean he’s leaving WWE.
  • Dave Meltzer responded to a question about Shinsuke Nakamura’s status with WWE by saying “he’s not going back to Japan”.
  • Paige will be focused on promoting Fighting With My Family soon, and that’s one of the reasons she was taken out of the SmackDown General Manager role.
  • Insider says there are plans to shoot segments with R-Truth & Carmella at WWE headquarters to follow-up on the Mixed Match Challenge dream vacation angle.
  • That site also says Mark Haskins has signed with Ring of Honor, and that ROH plans to use New Japan’s Will Ospreay as much as possible in 2019.

Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
