Report: Ronda Rousey Under Contract With WWE
Rousey last wrestled for WWE in 2019
Royal Rumble season sees wrestling rumours flying out of the woodwork left right and centre, with reports emerging earlier this week that former WWE RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey could be making her return to WWE at the Rumble on January 29.
The former UFC star hasn’t been seen in WWE since WrestleMania 35 in 2019, but reports from Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter seem to suggest that Rousey is under contract with WWE.
“Ronda Rousey heads the rumours for Royal Rumble surprises and WrestleMania.
“Rousey’s name was first reported this week on Fightful. Since then this much has been confirmed to us. First, Rousey has been back training for pro wrestling. Second, she will be returning this year and she is under contract with WWE. Her original deal was up, but either a new deal was put together or WWE froze her three-year deal since she really only worked the first year and a few months of it. There have been WrestleMania plans that include Becky Lynch vs. Rousey that have been discussed internally. We have not confirmed her for the Rumble, but PWInsider did report her make-up woman is booked for both the Rumble in St. Louis and Raw two days later in Cincinnati.”
Furthermore, a report from WrestlingNews.co suggests that Rousey won’t be flown in to St. Louis for the Rumble until the day of the show, should she appear.
