Rumor Roundup (Feb. 21, 2018): Daniel Bryan status, Brock Lesnar deal, Elimination Chamber match, 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. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • Despite all the obvious continued build to a Daniel Bryan vs. Shane McMahon match, Dave Meltzer says Bryan still hasn’t been cleared.
  • Per the Observer, it’s possible Triple H will be put in charge of negotiating Brock Lesnar’s next deal with WWE.
  • Titus Worldwide vs. The Bar is likely to be added to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
  • Rey Mysterio recently told Inside the Ropes that conversations with WWE are still open. It’s expected he’ll be back with the company at some point within the year.
  • That rumor about WWE changing Apollo’s name because of the Parkland, Florida school shooter? Ryan Satin said WWE PR told him they didn’t send any email to Sportskeeda saying that was why as initially claimed.
