Rumor Roundup (Feb. 1, 2021): Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, Goldberg, Carlito, 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:

  • While she obviously wasn’t at Royal Rumble, Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio that Becky Lynch is “on her way back” to WWE.
  • It’s possible Ronda Rousey will be back for WrestleMania 37, says Meltzer, but it does make more sense for her to be in Dallas for next year’s WrestleMania or Los Angeles the year after because this year it’ll still be a scaled down event.”
  • Vince McMahon has been adamant that Goldberg use the jackhammer in his matches even when Goldberg and his opponent haven’t been “gung ho” to do the move, according to Fightful Select.
  • PW Insider reports Carlito is expected to stick around for tonight’s Raw, and may get a try out as a producer.
  • Users won’t be able to pause or rewind live WWE streams on Peacock, per Meltzer. The features may be added eventually, but won’t be there when the Network migrates over.

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.
