Rumor Roundup (Jan. 11, 2020): Edge return, Becky Lynch deal, Matt Hardy’s future, 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:

  • There continues to be speculation that Edge is indeed returning to WWE for a match, with hints from places like WrestleVotes.
  • A report got around that Becky Lynch signed a new deal with WWE in 2019 but she said she hasn’t signed anything new in years and her deal is up soon.
  • Matt Hardy is expected to leave WWE in March when his contract is up, per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. They also note his name is coming up as the possible leader of the Dark Order in AEW.
  • PW Insider says the latest word on Marty Scurll is that he’s close to a new deal with Ring of Honor.
  • The Observer says the deal he’s been offered is for WWE main roster level money, and roughly 40 dates per year while also allowing him to wrestle in New Japan, NWA, and possibly even AEW.
