Rumor Roundup (Dec. 31, 2018): WrestleMania 35 main event, women’s Royal Rumble, Lesnar vs. Cormier, 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:

  • The decision on what match will headline WrestleMania 35 has yet to be made, says the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The feeling does seem to be it will be a women’s match with Roman Reigns out of action.
  • There’s talk the women’s Royal Rumble match could once again headline the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
  • Dana White mentioned after UFC 232 that Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Cormier could still happen, though it’s unclear right now if it will.
  • New Japan’s upcoming Tokyo Dome show is doing great in ticket sales, says the Observer. So good, in fact, that it’s expected to be the most ticket sales to a Japanese show in over 15 years.
  • That site also says BJ Whitmer will likely be joining up with AEW when it launches.
