Rumor Roundup (Feb. 5, 2018): Kane injury, WWE unhappy with Mixed Match Challenge, Women’s Chamber, 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:

  • Wrestling Observer speculates Kane might be dealing with an injury, based on how little he worked in the Universal title match at Royal Rumble and the one-sided write-off the next night on Raw.
  • WWE officials are “very unhappy” about the approximately 30% week-to-week drops in live audience numbers for Mixed Match Challenge on Facebook, says The Observer.
  • An image claiming to be a local ad for Elimination Chamber making the rounds online shows the women challenging Alexa Bliss in the Chamber match as Sasha Banks, Bayley, Nia Jax, Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose.
  • On a recent Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer says Tyler Bate’s recent WWE losing streak is because he has heat with management over telling them he had other plans when asked to work a tour at the last minute.
  • According to a report by Squared Circle Sirens, Impact’s Rosemary suffered a knee injury at an indie show this weekend.
