WWE Top 5 rumours of the week and analysis: 9th January, 2017
Future of Kenny Omega, Brock Lesnar to switch brands, Huge feuds for Samoa Joe and much more.
With Wrestle Kingdom 11, Impact Wrestling getting new owners, WWE building up to Royal Rumble and much more on the showcase, the week that went by was a memorable one for the professional wrestling fans out there.
The rumour mill had plenty of things to buzz about as well. Brock Lesnar’s future with the company was a talking point as his current direction could see a big change in the coming months.
Elsewhere, the buzz about Samoa Joe found some new grounds. Batista’s status with the company and the relationship between John Cena and Nikki Bella also featured on the rumour mill and we are going to list all of these down and take a look at them.
#5 John Cena – Nikki Bella to be on-screen couple
The relationship between John Cena and Nikki Bella is not a secret. The duo is public about their relationship and have been featured on reality shows like Total Bellas and Total Divas.
However, WWE has not banked in on this relationship when it comes to their weekly television shows. This could change soon as WWE might be thinking about making these two a power couple on screen. The last time Cena was involved in such an angle was with AJ Lee.
Both Nikki and Cena now work at SmackDown and after the success that the Miz – Maryse and Rusev –Lana pairings have had, it makes sense to see Cena and Nikki together. Some rumours are even suggesting that such a segment could eventually set up the heel turn of Cena considering that Nikki draws natural heat from the fans.
