Rumor Roundup (Jan. 4, 2019): Kenny Omega deal, AEW & ROH & NJPW, WWE monitoring rally, 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:

  • According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE made a “fantastic” offer to Kenny Omega. It’s still not clear what he’ll be doing.
  • He also said that AEW, NJPW, and ROH will meet after Wrestle Kingdom about potentially working together, though he cautions politics could get in the way of this ultimately happening.
  • Bryan Alvarez mentioned that WWE officials will be attending the AEW rally to “monitor” the situation.
  • Nikki Bella is now dating Artem Chigvintsev, per Us Weekly. He’ll appear on Total Bellas’ next season.
  • Per PW Insider, MLW signed Davey Boy Smith Jr. after ROH tried to sign him before the MLW live special on BeIN Sports. ROH, however, denies that.
