Former UFC Star and RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has not been on WWE television since WrestleMania 35, where she lost her title to Becky Lynch in a triple threat match in the main event of the pay-per-view, which also featured Charlotte Flair. Ronda Rousey’s return date was also previously confirmed.
Ronda Rousey’s original WWE contract has already expired. As reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ronda Rousey’s WWE contract was set to expire back in April. It is likely the company extended it somehow as the belief is that she will be returning to the company someday.
Former WWE Superstar and current AEW star Ruby Soho recently spoke on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, where she talked about working with Ronda Rousey.
“It was awesome. Ronda’s so great. Like, I can’t say enough nice things about her. She’s incredibly humble and she always approached it from a way of ‘I know this is a sport that I don’t know a lot about, but I want to learn.’ And she absorbed it like a sponge, her instincts were on point. She picked everything up so quickly. And she was amazing, she was so much fun to work with. And it was such an awesome thing too, because a lot of times you kind of feel like things feel monotonous when you approach matches and stuff. Where you go ‘okay, I approach this opponent the same way I approach this one.’ With her, it was something where I had to hit a hard reset and go ‘okay, well this girl can get me in a hold. If she does, I’m done.’
“It was awesome to have to think differently than I had previously with opponents. I had to approach it differently, and it got my creative juices flowing and hers as well. She was awesome. I went up to her and was like ‘I need all the things that are illegal in mixed martial arts. Tell me all of them, cause those are all the things I’m going to do to you.’ She was the one who rallied for the singles match that we had after Elimination Chamber. She was the one that asked for that. So I thought that was really awesome of her to do that, and that was the first time, and only time I believe, I main evented a singles match on Monday Night RAW.”
