New, 51 comments

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 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:

  • According to Fightful, Mercedes Martinez asked to be removed from RETRIBUTION and return to NXT, and there is no significant heat on her for doing so.
  • Candice LeRae told PW Insider that she doesn’t actually have a broken arm; she suffered a deep tissue injury.
  • Fightful mentions that Liv Morgan has been praised backstage for going above and beyond, and for how passionate she is about improving.
  • Post Wrestling was told that content for the upcoming NXT India project will be shot on Jan. 22, and it’s listed as “India Special.”
  • Sources say that Vince McMahon ordered Santa Claus to ditch his first name and change his entrance music while delivering Christmas presents this year. Claus is expected to contact Andrew Yang about this issue next week.
