WWE Rumors: Seth Rollins Return, Bayley Title Plans, Hulk Hogan Comeback, Naomi

Kris Holt

The latest WWE rumors involve a trio of returns from former champions, along with speculation about the future of Bayley's Raw Women's Championship.

Seth Rollins has been forced to sit on the shelf since Samoa Joe debuted on Raw three weeks ago and attacked him. As Joe locked in the Coquina Clutch on Rollins, The Architect tweaked his knee, and many feared another long layoff. It'd be the second accidental knee injury to put Rollins out of action in just over a year after he spent time on the sidelines in late 2015 and the first half of 2016 while rehabbing an injury.

The doubt WWE has placed in fans' minds seems to have been a smokescreen, though, as Rollins is scheduled to appear on next week's Raw for a sit-down interview in which Cageside Seats expects him to announce he will be back by WrestleMania 33.

Seth Rollins has been begging for a match with Triple H after The Game cost him an opportunity to win the WWE Universal Championship in August, and all roads (still) seem to be heading toward a WrestleMania 33 showdown between the two.

Hulk Hogan is reportedly pegged for a WWE comeback, but it's not expected he will return in the near future. WWE severed ties with Hogan over racist comments that emerged during his legal proceedings against Gawker in 2015.

"I do not think the world is flat, I'm just saying there's some stuff about it. [...] I'm not a 'flat-earther.' I'm just saying there's some stuff about it that makes sense. I don't think you can handle it."
