Rumor Roundup (Jan. 20, 2020): Royal Rumble entrants, NXT, Sasha Banks, Mike Kanellis, 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:

  • The Observer notes that as early as a couple weeks ago there were plans for NXT talents to be in both the men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches.
  • The word is that Sasha Banks is not injured and she’s just been getting taken out of planned matches with Lacey Evans to build to Evans’ title shot against Bayley.
  • PW Insider says Tony Nese and Mike Kanellis are being tested as a possible tag team to be used regularly on NXT television.
  • Jazzy Gabert seemed to indicate she is a free agent via her Twitter and that she is done with NXT UK.
  • Allysin Kay is now saying Tessa Blanchard is trying to dig up dirt on her and spreading lies about her in response to Kay speaking out against her.
