Rumor Roundup (Jan. 2, 2019): Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, free agents, Halloween Havoc, 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:

  • Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn likely won’t return until at least Royal Rumble, where it’s possible they will be surprise entrants.
  • AEW has been talking to a lot of free agents. DJZ and Trevor Lee are expected to draw interest from both AEW and WWE.
  • WWE is still trying to trademark “Halloween Havoc” and have yet to have success with that.
  • Tye Dillinger’s recent Twitter activity has led to speculation about his status with WWE. There doesn’t appear to be any change in that as of right now.
  • PW Insider notes the belief is Double or Nothing will take place sometime this spring.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you’d like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. Have fun with it.
