Rumor Roundup (Dec. 26, 2019): Rumble winners, Black/Murphy, Killer Kross, 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:

  • Roman Reigns and Shayna Baszler are pencilled in as Royal Rumble winners right now, according to Sportskeeda’s Tom Colohue.
  • Aleister Black & Buddy Murphy’s rivalry will continue past their rematch next Monday, per Wrestling Observer Radio. This is another case where Paul Heyman wants the feud to be a push for both guys.
  • Killer Kross is in a great negotiating spot, according to A source told them WWE is willing to debut him on Raw or SmackDown and “fast track him into the upper card”.
  • Several of the enhancement talents used the past two Raws were graduates of Seth Rollins’ Black & Brave Wrestling Academy. Head trainer Marek Brave says to expect to see more in the future.
  • Shazza McKenzie told Fightful she hasn’t signed with AEW.
