Reason Ronda Rousey missed Raw this week

Ronda Rousey

Even though she has yet to have her second match, Ronda Rousey had regularly been appearing on the WWE Television ever since her debut at WrestleMania.

So it was surprising for fans when the former UFC Star did not appear on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw and it started all kinds of rumors.

Thankfully WWE has released a statement on Rousey, killing all the rumors about her absence from the Backlash followup episode of the Red Branded Show.

In the statement as seen below, it was revealed that the ‘Baddest Women on the planet’ will not appear on the show because of the filming of Shark Week:

Ronda Rousey will not appear on Monday Night Raw tonight, as she is currently filming for Shark Week, which begins Sunday, July 22 on Discovery.

Although Rousey is typically sinking her teeth into the Women’s division on the red brand, this week she is on location for an as-yet unrevealed piece of Shark Week programming.

  • What a joke

    …but she’s a full time performing like everyone else on the roster and will be on Raw and wrestle. B as in B, S as in S.

    I just came here to read the comments and see if anyone cared, because I didn’t see anyone actually missing her at all.

    She must be in the latest Sharknado movie

    The comedy of it is, nobody was actually asking why she is not on the show, just as they dont ask when any other wrestler misses a show. It happens, and nobody expects a wrestler to appear every week just for the sake of it. And when it comes to Rousey, I doubt anyone expects her to appear week in and week out.
