Ronda Rousey reveals her WWE run was initially going to end last year and more

Ronda Rousey Raw

Former RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey posted a video on her YouTube Channel where she talked about her future in WWE following Wrestlemania.

Ronda Rousey was injured during the main event of Wrestlemania, where she lost the RAW Women’s Championship to Becky Lynch in a triple threat match that also featured Charlotte Flair. Rousey said that she recently underwent surgery on her right pinky and revealed that she had two pins inserted into her hand and that she will need to wear a cast for the next four weeks.

After that, she will be vacationing with husband Travis Browne around the world. They will be enjoying themselves until they have a child.

Despite signing a multi-year deal with WWE, Ronda Rousey isn’t advertised for any WWE event now, as she is taking a break.  Rousey revealed that she originally had only planned to stay with WWE until last November and then go off to start a family. However, that changed when it was seen that there was potential for the Wrestlemania main event to feature only women.

”Originally we approached them, or I approached them, I thought I’d only be able to wrestle from WrestleMania until November because we already wanted to start a family,” Rousey said. “We came to the WWE as, ‘Hey, before we have a baby, I just want to come do this for a couple of months because it’s something I always wanted to do.’ It just kind of snowballed. Instead of being like a small detour in my life, it became my whole life for an entire year and I completely fell in love with it.

“As time went on, we were kind of playing it by ear, I loved it so much and I ended up getting the title. When it became a real possibility that women could be the main event of WrestleMania if I stuck around, I decided to stick around. We decided that after WrestleMania, me and my amazing husband would go off and start trying to start our family.”

Rousey said she doesn’t know if she will come back to WWE once she has a child, but she is leaving the door open for a future WWE return.

“As for WWE plans in the future, we want to have a baby first,” Rousey said. “I don’t know what it’s like to have a baby. I could look down at this beautiful child and be like, ‘f–k everything, I don’t care about anything else other than this baby’ and you’ll never see me again. Or I could be like my mom, she trained while she was eight months pregnant and then won the US Open six weeks after giving birth, which was unbelievable. I don’t think I’m going to try and aspire to her level. But I’m just saying, you never know

“I don’t want to make any promises about the future when I don’t know how I’m gonna feel in the future. So thank you everyone for your support, I had the most amazing time this year! I am also looking forward to a little bit of a rest and some mommy – daddy time.”

    She did what WWE sign her for get the Women to main event Wrestlemania. I actually believe her road to WM 35 were her best time in the WWE. If it is over best of luck to her.

    Hopefully that will be it with her.
    WWE did what they did with her, and some people liked it, some people didn’t.
    Personally I never got invested in her. Her promos were horrible and her in ring work was limited.
    Would rather see women who are actually wrestlers doing wrestling and cutting great promos than have someone come in, make more money than any of them and take the spotlight away.
