Rumor Roundup (Dec. 22, 2021): AJ Styles & Omos plans, WWE deals, Sami Zayn, 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 Omos & AJ Styles split was rushed because WWE has “significant plans” for both wrestlers in early 2022.
  • According to Fightful Select, Vince McMahon is now adamant about not granting any “no cut” clauses in new contracts for any talent.
  • Ringside News claims the writing team was told they can come up with long term ideas for Sami Zayn, furthering the belief he’s re-signed with WWE.
  • They also say WWE is in the process of making a lot of contingency plans in case COVID leads to a change in touring plans.
  • According to Forbes, CM Punk’s relationship with WWE management is such that he’ll likely never appear in any future WWE game.
