Ronda Rousey’s WWE Status
If fans are hoping Ronda Rousey would return to help create balance, they were wrong. Dave Meltzer stated in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that there are no plans for Rousey to return right now.
He continued the earliest fans could see Rousey again inside a WWE ring is WrestleMania 37. With no fans in attendance, WWE might not want to waste Rousey with no live crowd.
Rousey has not been spotted on WWE for over a year. Her last appearance was losing to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35.
The match also involved Charlotte, with all three making history by main eventing the show. In the end, Becky became the first and only person to pin Rousey.
While WWE are losing their biggest female stars, it allows other superstars to be featured. Lately, Bayley and Sasha Banks are being seen heavily on all three brands.
In summary, Rousey may never return to WWE. The former UFC Champion and Olympian has done enough where she can rely on Hollywood to pay the bills.
