Rumor Roundup (Jan. 28, 2020): Samoa Joe injury, women’s WrestleMania plans, Edge/AEW, MVP, 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:

  • Samoa Joe being removed from Raw’s tag title match for an injury was not a work, according to PW Insider. Medical personnel made the decision and the rest of the match was called in the ring.
  • Becky Lynch vs. Shayna Baszler is the plan for WrestleMania, says Wrestling Observer. Charlotte Flair vs. Bayley is not (an update on plans for Flair can be found here).
  • Multiple sites, including WrestleZone and Pro Wrestling Sheet, report Edge was cleared by an independent doctor and talked to AEW before agreeing to his new WWE contract.
  • Edge will work limited dates, per the Observer. Insider’s heard he’ll be treated as a “special attraction”.
  • MVP has more dates coming up with WWE but won’t be a regular, according to Wrestling Observer.
