Rumor Roundup (Jan. 25, 2020): Royal Rumble plans, teases, feuds, hair vs. mask, 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:

  • It isn’t expected that any title will change hands at Royal Rumble.
  • Hornswoggle is teasing that he’ll be in Houston for the Royal Rumble but there’s been no word of him as a possible surprise.
  • The Lana/Lashley vs. Liv Morgan/Rusev feud is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.
  • Despite Rey Mysterio saying he’s open to a hair vs. mask match with Andrade at WrestleMania, the Observer has noted there are no plans for that.
  • Tony Khan recently recently “took more control” of the booking for AEW, per the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
