Ronda Rousey dropped the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair, who made a surprise return on the latest edition of Friday Night SmackDown. This led to fans speculating if Rousey is parting ways with WWE.
Ronda Rousey plans reported
Lock Betting reported that that match between Becky Lynch and Rousey “had been planned for a year” but Triple H “wants Ronda for another year and is dangling the carrot of a WM match with Baszler this year and a lighter schedule.”
It has been further noted that if she stays, Becky vs Ronda could be on the cards next year and Beck vs Rhea Ripley this year. This is why Becky is talking about both matches during media scrums.

Furthermore, there is no word on who Lynch or Rousey will now be wrestling at the event in California. Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that he had been told that a match between Rousey and Lynch is not the plan.
