Rumor Roundup (Jan. 23, 2021): WrestleMania 37 plans, top matches, Roman Reigns’ opponent, 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:

  • WrestleVotes says the WWE creative team started working on bigger ideas for WrestleMania 37 once the decision was made to run a two-night event. The belief is they need four major matches, two per night. For that matter, they say John Cena and Bill Goldberg are “nearly locks” for the show.
  • As for what the top of the card will look like, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter says WWE is still undecided on all the major matches as of right now.
  • They do say that there are currently two names being considered for Roman Reigns, so Daniel Bryan is not locked in yet.
  • Lastly, Meltzer says WWE hopes to have 30,000 fans in the building for both nights at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.
  • Per the Observer, AEW is trying to bring Riho back and it could happen as early as February.
