Rumor Roundup (Jan. 25, 2021): WrestleMania 37, Shinsuke Nakamura, AEW Revolution move, 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:

  • The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes we may not know the top WrestleMania 37 matches until a few weeks before the show.
  • They also say Shinsuke Nakamura is not currently being considered as a possible opponent for Roman Reigns at the show.
  • He had mentioned talk of it already but Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio that AEW will indeed move the Revolution pay-per-view to Sun., Mar. 7, 2021. The move was apparently made because AEW doesn’t want to go up against Canelo Alvarez’s next fight or a triple championship UFC card.
  • PW Insider notes that Superstar Spectacle was overseen by Triple H and the NXT team, and the event was done to present NXT Indian talents “in the strongest light possible.”
  • The Observer notes that while Ryback has teased signing somewhere, he won’t be signing with AEW.
