Rumor Roundup (Jan. 25, 2019): Undertaker update, Royal Rumble plans, new WWE deals, 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:

  • Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Undertaker is not currently scheduled for a match at WrestleMania 35.
  • They also say there’s still the possibility of Becky Lynch losing to Asuka and entering the Royal Rumble and winning to set up a WrestleMania match with Ronda Rousey. If the title match happens before the Rumble, it will be something to look for, at least.
  • Wrestlers in WWE are being told that when new TV deal money comes in the new contracts the company gives out will be much better, according to the Observer.
  • The latest word on Lars Sullivan appears to be that WWE is still high on him and whatever issues he is going through won’t affect his push once he’s ready to come back.
  • The Observer notes that MLW tried so hard to sign Rush because the promotion wants to hit the Hispanic market with the idea that it hasn’t been tapped into well enough in the United States.
