Rumor Roundup (Jan. 24, 2020): Royal Rumble surprises, WWE returns, NXT, 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:

  • WrestleVotes notes that details regarding the Royal Rumble are being kept quiet as possible in hopes of maintaining the surprise.
  • PW Insider says WWE is bringing in Santino Marella for the Royal Rumble.
  • They also say Nia Jax and Ruby Riott are scheduled for the weekend, though that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be back in the match itself.
  • The women’s Royal Rumble is expected to have a heavy presence from NXT and NXT UK.
  • Per Insider, Ring of Honor is going to bring in Australian star Adam Brooks.
