Reason why Ronda Rousey was absent from Raw this week

Ronda Rousey made her official WWE debut during the Royal Rumble PPV and soon afterward it was reported that the UFC Star has signed a ‘full time’ contract with the company.

However, the former Champion didn’t appear on either Raw or SmackDown following the PPV which made many people wonder about the reason behind it.

Several sources report that Ronda had to fly back to Colombia following the PPV to continue the shooting of the Mile 22 movie and this was the reason why she was absent from WWE Programming.

Ronda is scheduled to continue shooting for the film for the next 2 weeks and it’s not very likely that she will appear on WWE Programming again until it wraps up.

As we noted before WWE is currently planning a mixed tag match involving Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania. No word on who will be her partner in the bout but Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are expected to be their opponents.

    My guess is that given how her appearance trivialized the historic women’s rumble WWE figured she would be booed out of the arena. As some of the participants noted everyone is talking about Ronda and not the Rumble.

    So this will overshadow the culmination of the Mixed Match Challenge…? Brilliant.

    I think it was pretty obvious why she did not appear considering all the talk before the Rumble as to why she would not appear. The film crew may have given her permission to go for one day, but they would need her back ASAP as every day they dont film, costs them money
