Rumor Roundup (Jan. 10, 2020): Tyson Fury WrestleMania plans, Shayna Baszler, Chelsea Green, 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:

  • WrestleVotes claims that Tyson Fury will likely only be offered a deal to work WrestleMania 36 if he defeats Deontay Wilder in their boxing match on Feb. 22.
  • Shayna Baszler is looking likely to be on Raw “sooner rather than later,” says Observer Radio.
  • They also note that Chelsea Green’s recent Raw match was a tryout of sorts and when she showed up on NXT that meant she won’t be called up.
  • For what it’s worth, Kurt Angle told Chris Van Vliet that he believes Vince McMahon wanted him to wrestle for another year but Angle said he wanted to retire when he did.
  • Wrestling Inc says Showtime has interest in MLW.
