Rumor Roundup (Jan. 18, 2020): Brock Lesnar plans, WrestleMania change, potential returns, 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:

  • Per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Tyson Fury is not the plan for Brock Lesnar’s WrestleMania opponent, whether he wins his fight against Deontay Wilder or not.
  • Justin LaBar notes there continues to be talk in WWE circles about possibly making WrestleMania a two day event.
