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:

  • For whatever it’s worth, PW Insider says that WWE considers Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss babyfaces.
  • WrestleVotes notes that WWE are expected to remain in the ThunderDome until February, no matter where the location for it will end up being.
  • They also say WWE is working on “something different” for the Royal Rumble and they want fans at that show.
  • Per the Observer, Britt Baker was originally earmarked to be the top star of the AEW women’s division, and there was a lot of support for Kylie Rae before her decision to retire.
