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:
- Brock Lesnar is currently scheduled to work Royal Rumble, and it’s not expected we’ll see him again until 2020.
- Samoa Joe is currently scheduled to do commentary on Monday Night Raw this evening, says the Observer.
- Speaking of announcing, they also say Jerry Lawler was never meant to be on the Raw team long term and Lawler himself recently said he’s unsure how long her would be on but that he’s signed a new deal with the company within the past month.
- On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted current TLC plans call for Roman Reigns vs. Baron Corbin in a stipulation match, and Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair challenging for the women’s tag team titles.
- Meltzer also said that Mauro Ranallo is doing much better and could return to NXT soon. It’s still unclear when that will be, however.
