It is definitely plausible that we'll have a Legion invasion event in 5.5.
Just look at the name, 'Skysunder', how similar to the Sundering it is. And with the Shaohao video's we've been getting that ended with an eerie note during the Sundering.
There's nothing to say a story arch can't span over more than one expansion. Same with a Legion invasion.
This could be the Pandaren's great moment. The infernals fall, the Pandaren fight back, but it isn't enough as the entire planet is besieged.
As a result, they take us down to the Dark Below (remember Pandaria has a lot of connection to N'Zoth) to find cover in the great underground caverns of Azeroth. Accidentally, we also stumble upon N'Zoth. So the expansion is indeed set during the burning legion invasion, but we have to go through another adventure while they invade. Meanwhile, we'll also begin the resistance movement, and then in the next expansion, we'll take it back.
Still fits with the 'You'll need Turalyon for what's next' quote by Metzen, and all the BL teasers.
"Good morning!" said Bilbo, and he meant it. The sun was shining, and the grass was very green. But Gandalf looked at him from under long bushy eyebrows that stuck out farther than the brim of his shady hat.
"What do you mean?" he said. "Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"
"All of them at once," said Bilbo.
Truly depressing that people of the human race are stupid enough to legitimately fall for nonsense like this.
Someone took a pic of their screen. That makes this smell even more fake.
I'd personally doubt anything that is presented like that.
The whole "photo of the computer screen" thing can be done intentionally to help cover up any blemishes, errors, or tells of shoddy photoshop. This has happened in the past, as I recall, including a fake Brewmaster class page that someone posted about on Youtube, claiming it was real, and having his roommate film him over his shoulder. The distance helped cover up the blatant photoshop errors, due to distance and lower quality.
I mean, ask yourself, why take a photo of the screen instead of a much cleaner screenshot?
Doesn't make outlandish promises? - Check.
Reasonable photoshop? - Check.
First leak in a while that's actually possible.
Of course, the reason it's possible is because we know almost nothing even if it is true other than a word and a confirm that a 5.5 patch exists.

look, more crappy legion-based fanwank.
Remember Ra-den's speech about a terrible evil beneath our feet? Remember the puzzle box of Yogg-saron's quotes about a Nyalotha? Remember the Rift of Aln? Remember Ozumat and Neptulon being kidnapped by him?
Dark Below is jargon associated with all of that.
If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.
My own opinion is enough for me, and I claim the right to have it defended against any consensus, any majority, anywhere, anyplace, anytime.
