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:

  • Things with last night’s Raw “fell behind schedule” from a production standpoint, per Fightful Select, but that didn’t have anything to do with advertised names like Candice Michelle & Carlito not being there.
  • AEW will tape all their February shows in Miami, according to bodyslam.net. That includes the Revolution PPV. The report doesn’t specify a venue, but notes there have been complaints about cold working outdoors in Jacksonville.
  • Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful tweeted that it was clear Marty Scurll was done at ROH when the company removed him from their roster page in September and reached out to his ex Deonna Purrazzo about returning while she Impact Knockouts champ.
  • On Konnan’s Keepin it 100 podcast, Rey & Dominik Mysterio said Dominik will be moving to Florida temporarily so he can train more, either at the Performance Center in Orlando or at Tyson Kidd’s gym in Tampa.
  • More WWE trademark filings that seem to point to the new stable with Xia Li & Boa in NXT: “The Hand” and “Shou” & “手”. The last two both translate to “hand”.

If you have heard of any interesting rumors that you’d like to add, feel free to post them in the comments section below. Just remember they are rumors and not confirmed as fact, so please take them as such. And check our weekly Rumor Look Back here to keep track of how often rumors turn out to be correct.
