• Reason Behind Ronda Rousey Taking Time Off After WrestleMania 35
As we noted yesterday, the Wrestling Observer reported that RAW Women’s Champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is expected to leave WWE after WrestleMania 35.
The Observer reports that talks of Rousey leaving WWE have increased within the past week and right now that is the plan.
According to ProWrestlingSheet, Rousey won’t be leaving WWE, but taking time off.
Rousey signed a 3 year deal with WWE last year and she told WWE officials that she wants to start a family and would like to take a break in between and WWE officials agreed to Rousey’s request.
ProWrestlingSheet’s Ryan Satin noted the following:
“We’re told around Survivor Series she informed the company that it was likely she’d be taking that break after WrestleMania.”
TMZ Sports posted the following regarding Rousey’s status:
“Multiple sources connected to Ronda tell TMZ Sports she’s ‘super happy’ in her new career and isn’t ready to pull the plug just yet.”
As we noted before, Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair is expected to be the WrestleMania 35 main event (which will be the first ever Women’s WrestleMania main event).
