Rumor Roundup (Dec. 6, 2019): NXT, Xavier Woods injury, WWE Network updates, 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:

  • Dave Meltzer mentioned on Wrestling Observer Radio that there’s an emphasis now to call it “WWE NXT” instead of just “NXT.”
  • There’s some word going around that Xavier Woods’ medical evaluation coming off his injury has been moved up, so he could be ahead of schedule on his rehab.
  • The quiet launch of the free WWE Network tier that launched yesterday is WWE testing it out to see about any potential issues before a proper launch, says PW Insider.
  • They also note the tiered WWE Network had been scheduled to launch in Jan. 2020 but it’s unclear if that’s still the plan.
  • While NXT is claiming Bobby Fish has a neck injury, Dave Meltzer says he actually heard it’s a concussion.
