Rumor Roundup (Jan. 11, 2021): Royal Rumble match, Kurt Angle, missing WrestleMania, 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 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:

  • There’s at least some speculation that Adam Pearce won’t end up being Roman Reigns’ opponent at Royal Rumble after all, and Kevin Owens will get that spot.
  • Kurt Angle said on his Facebook that he couldn’t make WWE Legends Night because of a prior commitment he couldn’t get out of.
  • WrestleMania 24 was taken off the WWE Network recently and the speculation is that it has to do with music rights and will be restored shortly.
  • Per Wrestling Inc, Dalton Castle is a free agent right now. Ring of Honor has apparently offered him a good deal but he’s exploring his options.
  • SI says Rush and Dragon Lee are expected to sign new deals with Ring of Honor within the next week.
