Top 5 WWE Rumors of the Week - February 5th, 2018
Missing NXT stars, backstage heat and more Ronda Rousey speculation in this week's rumor mill
If you saw the Top 5 Rumors of the Week - January 29th, 2018 you'll already know that the road to WrestleMania is well underway and with it comes a ton of 'Mania related rumors flooding the internet, and this week's rumor mill is certainly no different.
The only difference is that the rumors surrounding the fallout from the Royal Rumble seem to have died down, and why wouldn't they? Elimination Chamber is just around the corner, and WrestleMania shortly after that.
So without further delay, let's take a look at the Top 5 WWE Rumors of the Week - February 5th, 2018
#5 The Big Red Machine possibly injured

Kane also barely did anything the following Monday night on RAW when Strowman defeated him in the Last Man Standing match to earn a spot in the Elimination Chamber match for the #1 Contendership to Brock Lesnar's Universal Title at WrestleMania.
So, what's the reason for Kane's in-ring involvement being minimal at best? Well, Dave Meltzer has speculated that the would-be politician is working injured at the moment, hence the brevity of his in-ring actions.
