Rumor Roundup (Jan. 13, 2022): Rollins turn, Peacock edits The Rock, WWE interested in Wardlow, more!

WWE

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:

  • Seth Rollins played to the crowd against The Usos in a dark segment after SmackDown last Friday, leading to speculation from WrestleNews.co and others that he may at least lean babyface for his Royal Rumble program with Roman Reigns.
  • The famous “Rock Concert” main event with The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin has been edited out of the Peacock version of Mar. 23, 2003 Raw. A highlight video of the WrestleMania 19 go home segment is still on WWE.com
  • Several people in WWE love Wardlow’s potential and the company will try to lure him away from AEW when his contract is up, tweets WrestleVotes.
  • On his What Happened When podcast, Tony Schiavone revealed AEW picked up a two-year extension on his existing contract. He’ll remain with the company through at least mid-2024.
  • According to PW Insider, Moose & Deonna Purrazzo were “banged up” after their matches at Impact’s Hard To Kill PPV, but haven’t missed any bookings as a result. Trey Miguel and Rosemary weren’t so lucky, and will miss this weekend’s Wrestling Revolver show due to injuries suffered last weekend.
