Rumor Roundup (Dec. 21, 2019): WWE Raw booking, Cain Velasquez plans, Ric Flair deal, 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 the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the current booking idea for Raw is to have top stars in two programs instead of just one.
  • They also say Cain Velasquez’s next scheduled show with WWE is the Royal Rumble.
  • Ric Flair’s contract with WWE expires soon, per the Observer, and talk of him already re-signing is apparently untrue.
  • PW Insider says both Shane McMahon and Paige were backstage at SmackDown this week, although it’s unclear exactly what they were there for.
  • They also say Chris DeJoseph was there and because he was at TLC but not Raw, the speculation is he’ll be working creative for the blue brand.

Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. And check our weekly Rumor Look Back here to keep track of how often rumors turn out to be correct.
