WWE wants the road to WrestleMania to be heavy in traffic and a big way to do that is to have Ronda Rousey return. In a new report from Fightful Select, the heavy buzz around Stamford is that WWE is pushing to have Ronda Rousey make her return to the squared circle.
Word by those in WWE says that Ronda has been training and the talk is to potentially have her involved with the Royal Rumble and that it’s a matter of “when” not “if” the former RAW Women’s Champion returns. Fightful says that the rumors have been designated as a “poorly kept secert” in the company.
Rousey and husband Travis Browne welcomed their first child together back in late September, a daughter named La’akea Makalapuaokalanipō Browne. The former UFC champion has not wrestled since working the WrestleMania 35 main event in 2019, with RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair. Rousey noted back in October that she was ready to resume training. WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer Nick Khan stated in early 2021 that Rousey would be back “soon” but that was before she announced the pregnancy. Rousey’s original WWE contract was reportedly set to expire in April of last year.
