• Ronda Rousey Returning To WWE Soon
According to Brad Shepard, former RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey is expected to return to WWE programming soon:
“I asked a source in WWE about Ronda Rousey potentially returning to the company. I was told very soon, and ‘imminent’ is probably an appropriate word for it.”
It’s possible that WWE brings Rousey back in time for SummerSlam 2019. WWE wants to book an epic match-card for next month’s PPV (that’s why The Undertaker is expected to work SummerSlam as well), so that they can give some good competition to All Elite Wrestling’s All Out pay-per-view (which takes place in August as well).
There have been rumors that WWE would be looking to book Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch in a singles match when Rousey returns and it could happen next month at SummerSlam 2019!
We’ll keep you updated regarding Rousey’s WWE status.
