Possible reason why WWE nixed Ronda’s title match at WrestleMania 39

Ronda Rousey lost her WWE SmackDown Women’s Title to Charlotte Flair on final episode of 2022 Smackdown, ever since then Ronda was focusing on tag team run with Shayna Baszler. It was rumoured that Ronda & Shayna could face Iyo and Dakota for Women’s tag title.

Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that due to Ronda’s fractured arm, WWE was not able build a storyline.

The decision was made to nix the planned storyline that was leading to Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler getting a shot (and presumably winning) the women’s tag titles. No direct reason was given, although the idea that Rousey has a fractured arm and thus wasn’t going to be around for a television build for a title match at Mania probably factored into it. The feeling is why throw on a WrestleMania title match when you can’t really build it effectively right now.
