First, yes I misspelled the word “rumors” in this title on purpose, more so that it is closer aligned with the word wrestling. It will continue to be spelled that way in future “Wrumor” post, so if you don’t like it, you should probably just stop reading now.
Ok, now that we got that out the way, let’s start with the latest happenings that I am hearing that are going down.
1. Shaemus will drop the title to Roman Reigns soon.
Roman briefly won the title (5 minutes and 15 seconds to be exact) at Survivor Series in the championship tournament after he defeated Dean Ambrose. Shaemus then cashed in his Money In The Bank contract to capture the title for the fourth time. The word is that Vince did not want the fans to boo Roman while winning the title and having him get screwed over time after time, will earn him the sympathy of the fans and they will cheer. He received far more cheers already the night after on Raw, so his plan may be working. I’m not sure if they want the title on Roman as soon as TLC, but I can’t imagine it will be any later than Royal Rumble. The word is that Roman will be main eventing Wrestlemania again this year, this time as the champion.
2. MexAmerica is Vince’s idea, not Alberto Del Rio.
While many beleived that Del Rio was the mastermind behind the pairing of he and Zeb, apparently Vince is the one who came up with this idea. I like bringing back Del Rio and I like the pairing with Zeb, but I don’t like putting a title on Del Rio right away nor do I like the feud with Jack Swagger. Having Swagger join forces with him would have been a better route.
3. Finn Balor and Baron Corbin will be the next to jump to the main roster.
Yes! Yes! Yes! These two are going to be great in the main roster and them moving there also clears way for the next NXT star to be born. Balor is a very solid wrestler and is pretty solid at promos, while Corbin is equally as good on the mic, he could use a little polishing on the wrestling side. I don’t see it being an issue and expect them both to be great as I mentioned. It is beleived to be set up that Balor will drop the NXT title to Samoa Joe at the next NXT ppv.
4. Lana has been cleared to wrestle.
Before getting injured, it seemed as though Lana was all but set to make her in ring debut. Now that she is cleared to wrestle, it is just a matter of time before we see her in the ring to do more than just manage Rusev.
5. Wrestlemania plans scrapped.
As of now, any and all plans for Wrestlemania matches have been scrapped. Injuries and other unforeseen issues have led to the creative team to scrap anything they had planned and forced them back to the drawing board. Some rumors that were going around concerning matches at the wrestling version of the Super Bowl were Reigns vs HHH, Taker vs Cena and Batista vs Goldberg, yes Goldberg. Another rumor I’ve been hearing regarding Mania is that Brock is set to enter and win the Royal Rumble. We’ll see what happens.
Please note that everything you have read in this post is just rumor talk and should be taken with a grain of salt. No need to run with these stories, but it’s just things I have been hearing.
