According to a report from Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via The Mac Life), Ronda Rousey could soon be parting ways with WWE. Though she has been tremendously successful in the pro wrestling organization, her contract could reportedly end after WrestleMania 35 on April 7.
“There is a very good chance that Ronda Rousey will be finishing up with WWE at WrestleMania,” Meltzer reported. “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.
“It was always pretty much known it would be after this year’s WrestleMania because she made close to a full-time commitment for one year to WWE, even though it was announced at the time she signed a multi-year full-time contract.”
What a WWE departure would mean for Ronda Rousey is unclear. It could mean she’s plotting a retirement from combat sports, or even a return to the UFC, where she ruled the bantamweight division for so long — though that latter option seems very unlikely. Then again, she might just sign a new contract with the pro wrestling organization. Stay tuned for further updates on this situation.
