Rumor Roundup (Jan. 13, 2021): Kofi Kingston injury, Raw rope break, Ric Flair status, 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:

  • According to PW Insider, the jaw injury Kofi Kingston is dealing with right now is a legitimate issue.
  • The Observer says the top rope breaking during the Keith Lee spot on Raw was planned, and it was just a big moment before a commercial break.
  • Per Wrestling Observer Radio, Ric Flair is back as a full time performer, though it’s unclear how long that will last.
  • WrestleVotes notes that WWE believes the stress of trying to remove the ThunderDome setup for one night of fans at Royal Rumble is too much to make happen.
  • WWE initially planned to tape the Superstar Spectacle event over a few days at the Performance Center in Orlando but now it will be taped in one day, on Jan. 21, per PW Insider.
