Rumor Roundup (Jan. 1, 2020): Royal Rumble, Sonya Deville upset, Kalisto injury, more!

Royal Rumble WWE

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:

  • The Observer notes that ticket demand for Royal Rumble has been mixed. Expect names to start being announced for the Rumble matches quickly.
  • There’s at least some talk going around that Sonya Deville is upset at the Lana/Liv Morgan lesbian angle, because she has pitched doing one and always been shot down.
  • Kalisto may have suffered an injury at a WWE house show days ago, according to those at the show.
  • WWE Network News says the debut episode of Break It Down on Jan. 5 will feature Drew McIntyre.
  • PW Insider notes that Tony Schiavone will miss Dynamite this week and Taz could be used on commentary in his place.
