Rumor Roundup (Jan. 5, 2022): Original Jeff Hardy plans, Drew McIntyre injury, Raw, 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:

  • Fightful Select says WWE had plenty of plans in place for Jeff Hardy before he was released, including a run in NXT as MSK’s shaman.
  • PW Insider notes that Drew McIntyre is scheduled to get testing done on his neck sometime this week.
  • They also note that big names who had been missing from backstage at Raw in recent weeks all returned this past Monday, like Bruce Prichard and Michael Hayes.
  • Andrade has teased Ric Flair signing with AEW but there’s apparently still been no movement in that regard.
  • ITV Studios is working on a new Eddie Guerrero documentary that will release later this year, per PW Insider.
