Heyman NXT WWE

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:

  • Don’t be surprised if Ronda Rousey vs. Alicia Fox is the main event of Raw tonight. At the very least, it’s expected Rousey will win impressively.
  • Paul Heyman was at the WWE Performance Center recently teaching promo classes, according to PW Insider.
  • Matt Hardy has raised speculation on his future in pro wrestling with recent tweets. The Observer notes they weren’t retirement tweets but he is injured and in pain.
  • There are rumors going around that ALL IN could be broadcast on WGN America. Dave Meltzer couldn’t confirm that but did say Cody told him “the announcement is pretty big” and that it will likely be revealed on the next episode of Being The Elite.
  • PW Insider says WWE has looked into sites in both New York and New Jersey for WrestleMania Axxess next year.
