Rumor Roundup (Dec. 13, 2017): Royal Rumble plans, Brock Lesnar match, John Cena return, 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 legitimate news or fact, it’s just circulating around the pro wrestling rumor mill. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • The Observer is saying the plan is indeed for Brock Lesnar to defend the Universal title against both Braun Strowman and Kane at Royal Rumble.
  • That, of course, is so they can protect Strowman while ensuring Lesnar keeps the title. Kane will be there to eat the pin.
  • John Cena is expected to appear on Monday Night Raw on Christmas night.
  • Chris Jericho helping Don Callis get his spot at Impact Wrestling has led to speculation he will show up there too but that’s not expected.
  • PW Insider is reporting Rockstar Spud will be starting with WWE next week.
