*Note: These are just rumors. Some of these might get confirmed at some point of time and some others might just stay as rumors. Let’s take a look at the WWE rumor roundup of the week*

Becky Lynch to win at Survivor Series

Everyone expects Rousey to be the odds on favorite to win at Survivor Series but WWE want to pull off a swerve. This could either happen with Jax and Tamina costing Rousey the match or Charlotte Flair helping out Lynch.

The latter angle could also help kick start the Horsewomen angle now that all of Rousey’s posse are in NXT. Whatever happens, multiple reports now say that Becky Lynch is being pegged to win for sure on Sunday.


Drew McIntyre to be the next big thing

Similar reports suggest that WWE want to groom the next big guy to replace Roman Reigns. Since Reigns has no possibility of returning anytime soon and with the sticky situation that WWE is in with Strowman, McIntyre seems to be primed and ready to take the mantle.

His match with Kurt Angle was the start of that journey and over the course of the next few weeks, he will be in more high-profile matches to bolster his push.


Women might main event WrestleMania

Another area where WWE had to change plans due to Reigns’ illness is with regards to the main event at Wrestlemania 35.

Even though the idea was already floating around with regards to a women’s match main eventing Wrestlemania, now it is believed to be firmly the primary choice.

Ronda Rousey is one of the candidates while her opponents could be anyone from Alexa Bliss to Charlotte Flair or even Becky Lynch.
