Ronda Rousey is one of the greatest women’s MMA fighter. She played a huge role in elevating women’s division in UFC. She suddenly decided to join WWE after two consecutive loses in UFC.
She was still a huge star even after the lose. Ronda Rousey’s WWE career was pretty good. Ronda Rousey was part of first ever women’s WrestleMania main event match. Ronda Rousey’ last match in WWE was against Shayna Baszler, eventually Ronda Rousey lost the match. Since then she was not seen in WWE.
Ronda Rousey’ name recently moved to WWE Alumni section, which seemingly confirms Ronda is no longer part of WWE. She made a surprise appearance in Ring Of Honor, which is owned by AEW CEO Tony Khan. During AEW Full Gear press Tony Khan confirms that Ronda Rousey is not signed with AEW.
Booker T recently on Hall Of Fame podcast talked about Ronda Rousey. Booker T feels AEW could be the best place for Ronda Rousey.
“I don’t think Tony Khan is really concerned about how much money he’s spending on getting these guys under that banner. I think he’s moreso happy having those guys around and seeing those guys as a part of AEW. That right there, that’s a notch on the belt right there, snatching someone like Ronda Rousey from WWE. Just being able to say that. If Ronda Rousey is smart, she’ll sign a contract too and make sure the contract is only for 10 days a year.”
“So for me, Ronda was like, ‘Man, I like this WWE thing, it’s been cool having those WrestleMania moments with The Rock. Oh, that’s great, but I don’t have time to be on the road every weekend, that isn’t want I want to do.’ But for Ronda to be able to do this when she wants to do it, I think AEW is the greatest place for her to be.” (H/T: EWrestlingNews.com)
