• WWE’s Current Plan For Ronda Rousey Revealed
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials currently don’t want former RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey to do a one-off appearance on SmackDown’s 20th anniversary show (which will be SmackDown’s debut on FOX on October 4th).
WWE wants Rousey to return and get involved in a feud straight away, which will result in a mega match.
Word backstage in WWE is that Rousey will work a limited schedule (lesser dates than her previous run) in WWE when she returns from her hiatus and she’ll be used more as an attraction – similar to The Undertaker & Goldberg.
As of this writing, WWE haven’t decided Rousey’s role for WrestleMania 36. Becky Lynch is scheduled to be in the top women’s match at WrestleMania 36 next year, but no word yet on if a rumored singles match with Rousey will happen or not.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
