The first sentence of this week’s Observer newsletter is a doozy: “There is a very good chance that Ronda Rousey will be finishing up with WWE at WrestleMania.”
According to the report, Rousey — who has often talked about WWE as a temporary stop but signed a full-time contract with the company last year — is looking to start a family with her husband, Travis Browne. Rousey had previously teased Browne just joining WWE alongside her.
Here’s how they’re saying the Rousey story could finish up at WrestleMania 35, set for April 7 in New York (New Jersey):
If that’s the case, she would likely put Becky Lynch over more likely then Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania, given that would be what the fans would want. There was a decent amount of talk this past week internally, since we heard it from several people, that Rousey would finish up at WrestleMania. That may not be decided as that aspect is just the feeling people had since it’s the logical ending everyone came to based on the situation. As of today, this was the plan.
It’s certainly be a boost for Becky Lynch to be able to say she forever rid the WWE Universe of “Ronnie,” but the report mentions that the door would be open for Rousey to return as a part-time guest, similar to the current roles of John Cena and The Undertaker. More sports stars should do that. LeBron James should tell the Los Angeles Lakers that he’ll play for them again next season, but only in their five most important games.
Regardless, do you think WrestleMania will be the end for Ronda Rousey in WWE, or is this just the first bit of leaked information meant to shape how we view her match and character? Let us know down below.
We’ll keep you updated on any further info, and whether or not this also means Shayna Baszler and the other Four Horsewomen are getting called up the night after WrestleMania to Bullet Club Ronda out of the promotion.
