Rumor Roundup (Dec. 24, 2018): WWE TV plans, Neville, Gran Metalik issue, Aro Lucha, 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:

  • WWE is expected to load up its January episodes of television, both on Raw and SmackDown.
  • Chris Jericho mentioned recently on a podcast that The Elite tried to get Neville to work ALL IN but he wanted to debut in Dragon Gate.
  • Gran Metalik seems to have gotten himself into hot water for posting tweets, that have since been deleted, asking fans about promotions outside WWE he might work for.
  • PW Insider says that Aro Lucha commercials airing on Pop TV is not an indication the promotion has landed a deal on the network. It was apparently part of the deal with Impact.
  • All Elite Wrestling filed for a trademark for “Fight for the Fallen,” leading to speculation it will be an event for the new promotion.
